Stile Antico is an ensemble of young British singers, now established as one of the most original and exciting new vocal groups. The group’s most recent release, Song of Songs, won the 2009 Gramophone Award for Early Music and reached the top of the US Classical Chart.
Here Stile Antico embarks on a fascinating exploration of stunning yet neglected music; the wealth of Tudor and Jacobean sacred music written for private performance. Not only does this music chart a course through a period of remarkable historical and religious events, but it also gets to the very heart of the original concept of chamber music – the intimate act of making music with a small of group of people. We invite audiences to eavesdrop on this most profound and genuinely moving musical experience, presented in the round as this music was meant to be heard: in the unique setting of a cathedral.
