Chapelle Du Roi

Tenebrae by Candlelight
Wednesday, 1 April, 2015 - 19:30

A programme of exquisite music from the Triduum representing the agony and ecstasy of Holy Week: one of the richest sources of inspiration for many of Europe’s Renaissance composers.

As the tension mounted in the approach to the crucifixion and resurrection, the music accompanying the liturgy would become more emotional and highly wrought. The greatest drama was found in the candlelit service of Tenebrae held at sunset; the shadows lengthening as the candles were extinguished one by one.
