Stile Antico is firmly established as one of the world’s most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles, renowned for vibrant and expressive performances of music from the Renaissance. Working without a conductor, its twelve members have thrilled audiences on four continents with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of Renaissance polyphony. The group has received three Grammy nominations, and performed live at the 60th Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden.
Based in London, Stile Antico has appeared at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals. The group enjoys a particularly close association with the Wigmore Hall, and has performed at the BBC Proms, Buckingham Palace, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Cité de la Musique, Luxembourg Philharmonie, and Leipzig Gewandhaus. Stile Antico is frequently invited to appear at Europe’s leading festivals: highlights include the Lucerne Easter Festival and the Antwerp, Bruges, Utrecht and York Early Music Festivals. Also Washington’s National Cathedral and Library of Congress, Vancouver’s Chan Centre, and the Quebec Festival of Sacred Music.
Stile Antico’s performances are often praised for their immediacy, expressive commitment, and their sensitive and imaginative response to text. These qualities arise from the group’s collaborative working style: members rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing artistically to the musical results. The group is also noted for its compelling programming, which often draws out thematic connections between works to shine new light on Renaissance music.
