DERRY CHOIR FEST – TENEBRAE
Join us for the return of award-winning vocal ensemble Tenebrae, under the direction of Nigel Short, for a stunning programme of choral singing in the beautiful surroundings of the historic St. Columb’s Cathedral.
Tenebrae will perform their Humanity and Liberty programme featuring Francis Poulenc’s Figure Humaine, Philip Moore’s Three Prayers of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and readings by BAFTA nominated actor Juliet Stevenson.
One glance at the global state of geopolitics and it becomes clear that man fails to learn the lesson that history so easily teaches us: namely that little is ever gained from war but there is much to be lost. The message in this programme is one of peace, the longing for it and the beauty, innocence and simplicity that can result from it.
