Stile Antico

Church of St. Mary the Virgin

This event has ended.

  The “crystalline and ethereal voices” of the young British choir Stile Antico are back with a program of masterpieces from the golden age of choral music. The richly varied repertoire features works by fifteen composers, including Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, and represents a broad range of Renaissance styles from Flemish to Tudor to Jacobean—even a piece based on a medieval text,  but written specifically for the twelve voices of Stile Antico.
