Founder and artistic director of Tenebrae and Tenebrae Consort, Nigel Short is a conductor of international repute, leading Tenebrae to win the Choral Category of the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2012 for their recording of Victoria Requiem. A former member of the world-renowned vocal ensemble The King’s Singers, Nigel studied singing and piano at the Royal College of Music in London. He has previously performed as a member of The Tallis Scholars, Westminster Abbey and Cathedral choirs and The King’s Consort, as well as taking solo roles in oratorio and opera all over Europe.

On leaving The King’s Singers, Nigel wanted to start a new choral group to combine a large force of singers with movement around the performance venue as well as embracing the use of light, ambience, time and space, and in 2001 Tenebrae was born.

Through Nigel’s direction and vision, Tenebrae has enjoyed collaborations with talented composers and arrangers, pianists and organists of various musical genres, and now enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s leading choirs.

Nigel has also conducted several of the world’s finest orchestras both in concert and in recordings including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra; and in Baroque repertoire, the English Concert. He has also made recordings with record labels EMI Classics, Warner Classics, Decca Records, LSO Live and Signum Records with whom Nigel has worked closely on many projects from the start of Tenebrae’s existence.
