Music for Holy Week, with Nigel Short

06-04-2017

As Nigel Short, conductor of Tenebrae choir, launches a new festival of music for Holy Week at London's St John's Smith Square, he talks to Gramophone's Editor Martin Cullingford about why the music written for Holy Week has such extraordinary power. Excerpts are taken from Tenebrae's recording of Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories, on Signum Classics.
