Tenebrae return to disc on Signum with a sumptuous collection of songs and carols for Christmas time. Anyone who has heard this finely tuned, professional choir in action before will be understandably excited to hear them bringing these festive works to life.

“Rutter's title-track perhaps shows off the choir's tonal blend to best effect, while Karl Jenkins' arrangement of "Gaudete" brings a brief burst of ebullience amid the piety. Two tracks which set the album apart: the superbly-measured arrangement of the Appalachian folk tune "I Wonder As I Wander", and Rathbone's splendid arrangement of "Silent Night".”
