A Wondrous Mystery

Stile Antico's new Christmas programme is a delightful mixture of the formal and the informal, of sophisticated polyphony and folk-like dances. Alongside a glorious, richlyscored Christmas mass by the Flemish composer Clemens non Papa, Stile Antico performs traditional old-German carols and motets, many of them still familiar today. Amongst the highlights are Eccard's infectiously joyful Übers Gebirg Maria geht and Praetorius' double-choir Magnificat, which includes the carols In dulci jubilo and Josef lieber, Josef mein. Based on the same Josef lieber melody, and neatly joining the two strands of the programme, is Resonet in laudibus by the Flemish-born, Germanresident master Orlandus Lassus. An irresistibly festive performance!
The festival is delighted to welcome Stile Antico back to York 10 years after winning the Friends of York Early Music Festival prize at the 2005 International Young Artists Competition. What a decade it has proved to be!
'Stile Antico made an extraordinary impact on everyone who heard them in the Young Artists' Competition in York a few years ago. Back then, they weren't sure what their future held - but we in the audience all knew they had something special to offer. And they've gone from strength to strength ever since. It's good to know that they're back in York this Christmas.' Catherine Bott, Singer and Classic FM presenter 

'…an ensemble of breathtaking freshness, vitality and balance.' New York Times
