Stile Antico

A Spanish Nativity

Regular visitors to Warwick since 2007 Stile Antico returns to the town, having made their debut Seville performance earlier this year, with the sensuous musical world of Renaissance Spain at Christmas. Drawing together an irresistible mix of sumptuous polyphony and infectiously joyful folk dances, the programme is centred around Alonso Lobo’s Missa Beata Dei Genetrix, with other music by Guerrero, Victoria, Morales and Rimonte.

Stile Antico

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.
