ABOUT “STILE ANTICO”
A Cappella Ensemble





A sensational ensemble of young British singers performing masterpieces from the golden age of choral music. STILE ANTICO A Cappella Ensemble took the international early music scene by storm. Their debut, Music for Compline, was nominated for a GRAMMY Award. STILE ANTICO’s recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have enjoyed great success, receiving the Diapason d'or de l'année, the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik , Choc du Monde, and the Gramophone for Early Music awards for bold, dynamic interpretations, expressive lucidity, and an imaginative response to text.

At the heart of the program is British composer John McCabe’s "Woefully Arrayed", a tour-de-force of choral textures.

 


STILE ANTICO = "ANCIENT" ITALIAN MUSIC STYLE





Giovanni Pierluigi da PALESTRINA (1525 ~ 1594)
Renaissance composer of sacred music.
The Precursor of STILE ANTICO music style


Stile antico, literally "ancient style" (as opposed to stile moderno), is a term describing music from the sixteenth through the twentieth centuries associated with composers of the high Baroque and early Classical periods of music, and to imitate the compositional style of the late Renaissance. Stile antico was deemed appropriate in the conservative confines of church music. Much of the music associated with this style looks to the music of composer Giovanni Pierluigi da "PALESTRINA" an Italian Renaissance composer of sacred music and the best-known 16th-century representative of the Roman School of musical composition. He has had a lasting influence on the development of church music, and his work has often been seen as the culmination of Renaissance polyphony as a model.

In the early Baroque, Claudio MONTEVERDI and his brother coined the term "prima pratica" to refer to the older style of Palestrina. Subsequently, "seconda pratica" was used to refer to Monteverdi's modified Stile Antico music style. The great composers of the late Baroque all wrote compositions in STILE ANTICO, especially Bach, Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart. Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, written after the composer's study of Palestrina, is a late flowering of the STILE ANTICO style.
