The miraculous acoustic of Whitekirk’s mediæval parish church resounds to the superb voices of Tenebrae in a candlelit performance of the timeless chants of the early church, complemented by Thomas Tallis’ poignant and intense ‘Lamentations of Jeremiah’.

The beautiful simplicity of thousand-year-old plainsong melodies alternates with elaborate polyphony. A captivating experience.

“The performance of Tallis’s Lamentations is majestically dark and intense”

“Hypnotically pure”
