The current popularity of English Renaissance choral music owes much to the groundbreaking work of the Carnegie UK Trust, which celebrates its centenary in 2013. In 1922, the Trust inaugurated the Tudor Church Music edition – a series of hugely influential volumes, unearthing a wealth of extraordinary music that had languished unperformed for centuries.

Stile Antico celebrates this remarkable legacy with a programme drawn entirely from these publications, including masterpieces by Taverner, Tallis, Gibbons and White. Crowning our programme is the exquisite five-part Mass by William Byrd, whose modern reputation as the greatest composer of the English Renaissance was founded on these pioneering editions.

This concert is kindly sponsored by the Carnegie UK Trust.
