Program and Notes
 
Path of Miracles by Joby Talbot
Tenebrae (choral ensemble), directed by Nigel Short


The 62-minute a cappella choral work, "Path of Miracles" depicts the journey of medieval pilgrims to Santiago, Spain, resting place of St. James. Extensive use of ostinato patterns, soaring soprano lines, and Tenebrae's incomparible vocal virtuosity make this CD a must-have for anyone who likes contemporary choral music.

The four movements of Path of Miracles are titled with the names of the four main staging posts of the "Camino Frances":

I Roncesvalles
II Burgos
III Leon
IV Santiago

One reviewer wrote: "I would go as far to suggest that Talbot’s “Path of Miracles” is to the first decade of the 21st-century what Arvo Pärt’s "Passio" was twenty years earlier." (Classics.com) Another said, "Path of Miracles is little short of a musical miracle itself."

This hybrid super-audio CD (SACD) plays in both a standard CD player, and those equipped for SACD.
