Stile Antico, early music vocal ensemble

Stile Antico - 'This Joyful Birth'

Sat 2 December 2023

Little St Mary's Church

Stile Antico recounts the journey to the manger in a glorious sequence of
music from mediaeval and Renaissance Europe. Our programme follows each
scene of the Christmas story, beginning in Advent and moving through to the
Nativity, the visits of the Shepherds and the Wise Men, and finally to the Feast
of Candlemas. Nearly every major composer of the period is represented in a
feast of festive music: highlights include Victoria's intimate ‘O magnum
mysterium’, thrilling motets by Byrd, Lassus and Sheppard, mediaeval carols,
and irresistible dances from Spain and Germany.

Stile Antico is one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles, renowned for vibrant
and expressive performances of Renaissance music. Working without a
conductor, the ensemble has an extensive and award-winning discography
on the Harmonia Mundi & Decca labels. Its bestselling recordings have
earned accolades including the Gramophone Award for Early Music, Diapason
d’or de l’année, Edison Klassiek Award, and Preis der deutschen
Schallplattenkritik. The group has received three Grammy® nominations, and
performed live at the 60th Grammy® Awards at Madison Square Garden.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this world-class group in the stunningly
intimate mediaeval church of Little St Mary’s.

Cost: £25 / £15
