Stile Antico

Stile Antico is an ensemble of young British singers, now established as one of the most original and exciting new voices in the industry. In high demand, the group performs regularly throughout Europe and North America. Stile Antico will make its first appearance in Canada this December, performing dazzling renditions of Taverner, Byrd, and others.

Stile Antico’s recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have enjoyed great success, receiving the Diapason d’Or de l’année, the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik and twice attracting Grammy nominations. Their recent release Song of Songs won the 2009 Gramophone Award for Early Music and reached the top of the US classical chart.

Members of Stile Antico rehearse and perform as chamber musicians and work without a conductor. Stile Antico’s repertoire ranges from English Tudor composers to Flemish and Spanish pieces as well as early Baroque music. They are regularly invited to teach at Dartington International Summer School, and the group’s commitment to educational work has been recognized through generous funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Recent performances include debuts in New York (Music before 1800), the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and the Boston, Bruges, Barcelona and Utrecht early music festivals. They have toured extensively with Sting, appearing throughout Europe, Australia and the Far East as part of Sting’s Dowland lute-song project Songs from the Labyrinth.
