The British Stile Antico ensemble is recognized as one of the most original and exciting vocal groups in the world. The group has won two Grammy nominations and and has won hundreds of accolades for its sublime performances of early music throughout Europe and North America. Working without a conductor, the singers rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing artistically to the musical result. Their performances have repeatedly been praised for their vitality and commitment, expressive lucidity and imaginative response to text. Stile Antico will perform: Treasures of the Renaissance: Masterpieces from the Golden Age of choral music. Fifteen different composers represented, and a range of styles, from the intensity and fervor of the Flemish masters, to the distinctive and exquisite sound-world of Tudor and Jacobean England, to the polychoral fireworks of Vivanco and Praetorius.
