Stile Antico: A Garden of Delights

available until 20th March

As part of the Fresh Horizons concert series.

Expert interpreters of Renaissance polyphony, Stile Antico bring their trademark expressivity and vibrancy to this imaginative programme. Beginning in the realm of earthly delights through the amorous poetry and pastoral scenes of Elizabethan madrigals, the concert concludes with the celestial radiance of European polyphony, exploring the luscious heavenly gardens of the Bible’s Song of Songs.
