Platinum Consort performs 'In The Dark': Ancient and Modern Music for Tenebrae

This listing is in the past
Kings Place: Hall One90 York Way, London, Greater London, N1 9AG, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone
Platinum Consort and Scott Inglis-Kidger make their Kings Place debut with a glorious programme for, and inspired by, the Tenebrae tradition.

The Holy Week liturgies have provoked some of the most potent and emotional compositions of all time. Hall One will resound with the voices of eight of today’s finest young singers performing works from their recently released album, In The Dark, including James MacMillan's stunning Miserere and specially commissioned works by Richard Bates, Platinum’s composer in residence.

These contemporary works are juxtaposed – yet inextricably linked – with choral music by Lassus, Victoria, Purcell and Lotti.

The title work, Bates’ In The Dark, encapsulates the poignancy of Holy Week, with a new setting of the Tudor poem You that have spent the silent night by the Renaissance poet, George Gascoigne.
