2013 marks the 400th anniversary of Gesualdo's death. One of the most visionary composers of his time, he is commemorated handsomely here by the Tenebrae Choir.

'Tenebrae's faultless control and balance bring the sacred texts to life, including some wild modulations and sudden side-slips. They're followed by Victoria's own settings for the day before Easter, which in their powerful serenity and depth I find rather more compelling. The 16 singers of Tenebrae under Nigel Short's direction shine in the darkness'. The Observer

'Here Tenebrae (the choir) sings Tenebrae (the pre-Easter office) with a thorough understanding of this music's expressive potential, subtly inflected with its touches of drama. The performance is of a rapt concentration and intensity that underline the music's contemplative emotional power'. The Daily Telegraph

'There have been several fine recordings of these items . . . but this one excels, partly because it gets exactly right the balance between the mannered, madrigalesque features of the music and the eerie drama and morbidity of the religious story . . . Nigel Short's superb musical sensitivity to phrasing and texture illuminates everything . . . the endless dovetailing of the musical lines, all within an overall architectural vision, is exquisitely sustained . . . all in reverberant yet clear acoustics'.
