MacMillanís Strathclyde Motets

MacMillanís Strathclyde Motets

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom

Stile Antico

Stile Anticoís breath-taking artistry is shaped by the deep experience and expertise of its individual members. The early music vocal ensemble effectively works as a chamber music collective, delivering eloquent readings of sacred polyphony without a conductor or single director.

Each work in Stile Anticoís large repertoire unfolds in performance like the interior space of a medieval cathedral, vast and transcendent yet exquisitely rich in surface detail.

The ensembleís latest Wigmore Hall programme explores fascinating parallels between two composers working four centuries apart, alternating MacMillanís Strathclyde motets with Byrdís dazzling liturgical cycle Gradualia. Crowning this memorable juxtaposition is Byrdís longest and perhaps greatest work, Infelix ego.
