Tenebrae celebrates its 20th anniversary with this electrifying sequence of music and spoken voice. Composed in response to the occupation of France during World War II, Poulenc’s astonishing Figure Humaine forms the heart of this new programme. Notoriously virtuosic, this choral tour-de-force perfectly encapsulates *Tenebrae*’s core values of passion and precision. Alongside it, the choir performs new commissions from Josephine Stephenson and Roderick Williams, and spoken interludes provide a narrative framework for this celebration of love and freedom in times of adversity.

Tickets for the 2022 Cheltenham Music Festival go on sale to the public on 1st April.
