Stile Antico: The Passion of the Renaissance
Presented by Early Music Vancouver
A rich and enticingly varied journey through some of the most outstanding music of the Renaissance.
The fifteen different composers represented in this new programme span a vast range of styles, from the intensity and fervour of the Flemish masters at the opening, 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 programme is John McCabe’s Woefully Arrayed, a tour de force of choral textures based on a medieval text, written especially for the twelve voices of Stile Antico.
