Listen to the Path of Miracles by Joby Talbot with the cappella choir Tenebrae

Experience the Camino de Santiago differently, walking each day with the great Tenebrae Choir in your ipod. The unique cappella choir will shed new light on your journey along the 4 stages of the French Way with their moving new album Path of Miracles.

The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage to the tomb of the Apostle Saint James, but for many pilgrims, the experience they had along the Way brought them something more than what they were expecting which motivated to give a new direction to their life.
