Tenebrae

 

In the spirit of BBC Radio 3’s popular In Tune Mixtape joining together an eclectic range of classical and contemporary sounds we present a live, late-night wind-down, exploring the fringes of Minimalism and meditative listening.

With radiant choral sounds and heavenly strings plus guest soloists, the Royal Albert Hall transforms into a vast ambient resonator.

Pieces by the godfathers of ‘holy’ Minimalism, Arvo Pärt and Peteris Vasks, emerge out of the sublime classicism of J. S. Bach and Schubert, in a Prom to calm the mind and nourish the soul.
