Product Description

Product Description

Texts inspired by the dramatic events of Holy Week and Easter, set to music by some of the greatest Renaissance composers are the basis of this new hybrid SACD from Stile Antico. Included are two settings of the poem 'Woefully arrayed': the first by William Cornysh, the second composed for Stile Antico in 2009 by John McCabe (b. 1939). This is its first recording and Stile's first foray into contemporary music. Stile Antico is the benchmark ensemble of young British singers, working without a director and conducting much of their own artistic research for their programmes and concise, yet entertaining booklet notes. Much in demand in concert, the group performs regularly throughout Europe and North America. Their recordings on harmonia mundi have enjoyed great success, winning awards, including the 2009 Early Music Gramophone Award for Song of Songs. Their performances have repeatedly been praised for their vitality and commitment, expressive lucidity and imaginative response to text. Stile Antico s recent engagements include débuts at the BBC Proms, London s Wigmore and Cadogan Halls, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, early music festivals in Boston, Bruges, Barcelona and Utrecht, and at the Cervantino Festival in Mexico. The group has toured extensively with Sting, appearing across Europe, Australia and the Far East as part of his Dowland project 'Songs from the Labyrinth', and is regularly invited to lead courses at Dartington International Summer School.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Renaissance Easter collection 20 Jan 2013
By Stephen Midgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a lovely collection of Renaissance motets for Holy Week by English, Spanish and Franco-Flemish composers, with one modern inclusion. They are performed by the dozen young voices of the British early music ensemble Stile Antico. Every one of the pieces, arranged in an appropriate sequence progressing through Easter week and Resurrection, is of very high quality, as befits music inspired by such momentous and moving events.

The programme opens with William Cornysh's striking 'Woefully arrayed', to a text attributed to his contemporary John Skelton consisting of the imagined words and feelings of Christ on the cross. It's a vividly expressive piece, and in well-judged contrast it's followed by the uplifting Gibbons motet 'Hosanna to the Son of David'. Of the many other fine works here, my own favourites include Orlande de Lassus' 'In monte Oliveti' (track 4), in which the great Fleming demonstrates to perfection his absolute mastery of polyphony in the service of profound textual expression.

After the modern setting of 'Woefully arrayed' (7) by John McCabe (b. 1939), the mood turns more optimistic in the Resurrection pieces. John Taverner's 'Dum transisset' (8) is another glorious work, appropriately seeming to transport the listener heavenward with its almost equally beautiful text from St. Mark's gospel. Francisco Guerrero's 'Maria Magdalene', again, is truly lovely, its soaring opening motif followed by a series of bell-like descending phrases. If you are captivated by this motet, as I am, you'll surely appreciate fellow Spaniard Alonso Lobo's inspired parody mass based on Guerrero's piece Lobo - Missa Maria Magdalene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great SACD performance from Stile Antico 18 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have all of Stile Antico SACD releases on Harmonia Mundi. This one, like the others does not disappoint in terms of the beauty of the music, from a wonderful performance, brought to life through the medium of the SACD Surround sound. The CD stereo version, as ever sounds flat when compared to the openness of the surround sound version. The quality of the sound is superb. The music is glorious and is a superb reflection for the Eastertide period. The only piece that really 'jars' with me is Track 7, the modern setting by John McCabe, I have to skip over this whenever I play the disc (I don't do that at all with any other of Stile Antico's discs). I am sure this piece has merits but regretfully not anything that I can appreciate. The music from the tracks before and after just flow and carry you off to other places, but the McCabe piece just makes me feel uncomfortable, I just can't listen to it, try as I might, it feels as though it just does not belong. That said, this is a disc to be highly recommended. Thanks HM for releasing this as an SACD and supporting a format which means we can enjoy the music and the performance at its best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful. 2 Jan 2014

I still not quite sure how I found this group and the stunning early music they sing. If I have any criticism it is certainly not with the music or its performance but that I could only obtain it as an mp3 and not own the disc only being available in the now almost obsolete Hybrid SACD.
