This magical programme of music written for the final monastic service of the day ranges from exquisitely simple
hymns to breathtakingly complex webs of polyphony, culminating in John Taverner's thrilling votive antiphon,
Ave Dei patris filia. Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, Stile Antico is firmly established as one of
the world's most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles. Working without a conductor, its twelve members
have thrilled audiences throughout Europe and North America with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of
Renaissance polyphony. Its bestselling recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have earned accolades including
the Gramophone Award for Early Music, the Diapason d'Or de l'Année, the Edison Klassiek Award and the
Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and have twice received Grammy® nominations.
