Our recording of Holst’s ‘In the bleak midwinter’ is released as a single to download on 1 December 2022. All proceeds will go to Cancer Research UK. Please visit https://lnk.to/InTheBleak and download the track to support this cause which is particularly close to our hearts.
Earlier this year Tenebrae’s Director, Nigel Short, received a cancer diagnosis and underwent major surgery. He says: “Earlier this year I was unexpectedly diagnosed with bowel cancer, which was a real shock for me, my family and everyone around us. The NHS responded quickly, getting me in for a successful operation within a few weeks of my diagnosis, and I’m pleased and relieved to say that I’m now officially in remission.
We wanted to do something to support the amazing work that Cancer Research UK does to support everyone affected by cancer. Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for those who are fighting the disease themselves, and for those who have recently lost a loved one or are caring for friends and family.
All proceeds from downloads of ‘In the bleak midwinter’ will be donated to Cancer Research UK. Please consider downloading it today to support the vital work that this wonderful charity does every day of the year.” If you love this track and would like to hear more, our latest Christmas album In Winter’s House is available in our online shop and on all major streaming platforms.
