Saturday 21 February 7.30pm Stile Antico Song of Songs
A selection of sumptuous settings of the beautiful biblical texts found in the “Song of Songs” including works by Palestrina, Lassus and Victoria and other sixteenth century masters.
This stunning ensemble of young British singers burst upon the international scene with their debut disc for Harmonia Mundi which earned ecstatic reviews and numerous awards including a 2008 Grammy nomination. Working without a conductor they bring a chamber music intensity to all their performances.
