Stile Antico is firmly established as one of the world’s most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles.

Working without a conductor, its twelve members have thrilled audiences on four continents with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of Renaissance polyphony.

This concert brings together many of the ensemble’s favourite works from composers including William Byrd, John Taverner and Orlando Gibbons, and provides a fascinating window to the different styles of sacred choral music which flourished around Renaissance Europe.

The evening finishes with a special piece commissioned for Stile Antico in 2014 by Huw Watkins, The Phoenix and the Turtle, which sets words by Shakespeare, and describes the funeral rites of a phoenix and turtle dove, symbols of perfection and devoted love.

At 3pm, Stile Antico invite young people and their families on a 45-minute musical adventure to the Tudor period.
