Biography

Stile Antico is an ensemble of young British singers, now established as one of the most original and exciting new voices in its field. Much in demand in concert, the group performs regularly throughout Europe and North America. Their recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have enjoyed great success, receiving the Diapason d’Or de l’année, the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik and twice attracting GRAMMY nominations. Their recent release Song of Songs won the 2009 Gramophone Award for Early Music and reached the top of the US Classical Chart.

Working without a conductor, the members of Stile Antico rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing artistically to the musical result. Their performances have repeatedly been praised for their vitality and commitment, expressive lucidity and imaginative response to text. Stile Antico’s repertoire ranges from the glorious legacy of the English Tudor composers to the works of the Flemish and Spanish schools and the music of the early Baroque. They are regularly invited to lead courses at Dartington International Summer School, and their commitment to educational work has been recognised through generous funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Stile Antico’s recent performances include debuts in New York (Music before 1800), the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and the Boston, Bruges, Barcelona and Utrecht early music festivals. They have toured extensively with Sting, appearing throughout Europe, Australia and the Far East as part of his Dowland lute-song project Songs from the Labyrinth. Notable engagements in 2010-11 include debuts at the BBC Proms and at London’s Wigmore and Cadogan Halls, extensive touring in the USA, and performances in Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Mexico.
