Queen of Muses
Regular visitors to Warwick for over a decade, Stile Antico returns with an intriguing programme that explores the way music was used to gain favour with the the ‘Virgin Queen’, Elizabeth I, by courtiers and diplomats and even by suitors seeking to gain the royal hand in marriage. Along the way we meet foreign spies, disgraced favourites and plotting noblemen, illuminating the life of a court which rejoiced in some of the finest music ever created in England by Byrd, Farmer, Ferrabosco, de Lassus, Sandrin, Tallis, Taverner, Weelkes, Wilbye and Willaert.
