Tenebrae Wells 15.04.16

Sitting and supping at the Fountain Inn in the lee of Wells Cathedral one can easily gain the impression of being in the presence of somewhere spiritual and great. The scale and majesty of the building and the approaches through arches and greens in the half light was only to be matched by what we found inside.  The acoustics of the utterly magical singing from Tenebrae who without organs or instruments filled the huge space with sounds that were so precise and pure it must have given heart to the massive fabric of this wonderful church that such music can be repeated today in a way that it must have resonated in the past and around those superb cloisters. Passion and Precision is the motto to and anyone should beat a path to their performances; and if you happen to be in Wells wanting an obliging pre service supper does the trick.
