Suitable for SATB unaccompanied, this setting of the Tenebrae Responsories captures the sense of anguish and tension inherent in the text. Emotive chromatic harmonies and brief passages of strong unison writing combine to create a poignantly expressive Lenten anthem.

Review quote

This four-part work (with a bit of splitting in the bass and soprano) is marked to be sung 'with intensity' and would provide a most moving anthem for a Passiontide service. The part writing is darkly chromatic, but moves for the most part by step, and the two dramatic highpoints of the piece are at the same time beautiful and affecting without being overstated. At only three minutes long this is quite a gem and eminently learnable. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher April 06 *
