A sequence of music and poetry inspired by the service of Nine Lessons and Carols.
This year the challenges of COVID-19 have left many churches unable to hold their carol services. For all those who will miss these, Stile Antico presents a unique and beautiful sequence inspired by the traditional service of Nine Lessons and Carols. Masterpieces by some of the finest composers of the Renaissance alternate with intimate, metaphysical verse by poets such as John Donne and George Herbert. A veritable feast of words and music, culminating in John Sheppard’s spectacular setting of Verbum Caro.

‘The singing is staggeringly beautiful, the balance meticulous’ The Sunday Times
