Contemporary choral music, winter classics, and male choral works from the Renaissance to the present.
The new mini-festival in Basel: heart-warming vocal art in perfection with the best a cappella ensembles in Europe in the days between the years.
Tenebrae brings its trademark passion and precision to a wide range of music by some of the most exciting choral composers of our time, from Owain Park's haunting setting of "O magnum mysterium" to the touching simplicity of Elizabeth Poston's "The Apple Tree." A highlight of the program is Edward Naylor's boisterous hymn "Vox dicentis." The series concludes with some familiar carols that will put you in the winter mood.
In a pre-concert (Set 1), the ensemble Männerstimmen will perform male choral works from the Renaissance to the present day, as well as Swiss folk songs in all four national languages.
