Stile Antico: Toward the Dawn
Stile Antico is one of the world's leading choirs, specialising in music from the Renaissance period.
Toward the Dawn charts a course from twilight to sunrise, echoing both the rhythms of church liturgy and the mediaeval experience of night, seductive and unsettling in equal measure. Taverner’s mighty Ave Dei Patris Filia, based on a chant for Matins, stands at the end of a delicious sequence of sacred music, chansons and madrigals by both English and Continental composers.
Stile Antico offers a particularly appropriate programme for our time, as we all look forward with hope after a long, dark year.
