Classical Best of 2013

The Best Classical Album of 2013
Classical Album of 2013

Stile Antico are an unusual young ensemble in that they have no conductor and rehearse and perform as chamber musicians. Each member of the early music group contribute artistically to the pieces which lends them a transcendent and spacious sound, as demonstrated in this disc recorded in the rich acoustics of St Jude-on-the-Hill Church in Hampstead, London.

Many of the pieces in this record had been neglected through history but were brought to the fore in the 1920s publication of Tudor Church Music which helped to revive English Renaissance choral music. The ten volume collection dedicated to Tudor polyphony was brought together thanks to funding from the Carnegie UK Trust and includes pieces from the likes of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis included in the aptly named Phoenix Rising.

The range of tracks on the album exhibit Stile Antico's considerable talents from the better-known pieces such as Orlando Gibbon's "O Clap Your Hands" to the more technical "In ieunio et fletu" from Thomas Tallis. From the peaceful and spiritual to the passionate and sumptuous, the phoenix has been risen by Stile Antico.

"...[Phoenix Rising] is music making at the highest level." The Guardian

"Stile Antico's shaping of the music is sublime." The Telegraph

"Stile Antico is on top of its game here." Sinfini Music
