Stile Antico Returns to Davidson!
Treasures of the Renaissance:
Masterpieces from the Golden Age of Choral Music
Tuesday, April 16 * 7:00 p.m. * Sanctuary
Stile Antico is an ensemble of young British singers, now established as one of the most original and exciting voices in its field. Having shared their beautiful art with us in December 2011, they are returning to DUMC for another amazing performance you won't want to miss!
"Treasures of the Renaissance" provides a rich and enticingly varied journey through some of the most outstanding music of the Renaissance. The 15 different composers represented span a vast range of styles, from the intensity and fervor of the Flemish masters, by way of the distinctive and exquisite sound-world of Tudor and Jacobean England, to the polychoral fireworks of Vivanco and Praetorius. At the heart of the program is John McCabe's "Woefully arrayed," a tour-de-force of choral textures based on a mediaeval text, written especially for the 12 voices of Stile Antico.
