As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, Stile Antico have released their 10th album on Harmonia Mundi to critical acclaim. A Wondrous Mystery features Renaissance choral music for Christmas including the popular German carol Es ist ein Ros Entsprungen by Michael Praetorius, as well as the double choir Magnificat by Hieronymus Praetorius which interweaves In dulci jubilo and Joseph lieber, Joseph mein.
Receiving 5-star reviews in both BBC Music Magazine and The Observer, the CD has been praised on both sides of the Atlantic and reached the top 10 in the Billboard Classical Albums chart.
Stile Antico will be making their debut performance at the Temple Winter Festival on 15 December, performing A Wondrous Mystery live for the first time in London’s unique Temple Church.
“The rest of the disc is filled… with the same standard of superlative ensemble singing and well-chosen music that will make this a favorite recording for all Christmas choral collectors… You won’t hear finer singing anywhere”
“Stile Antico hit the spot… Now a decade old, having started as students, the 12-strong ensemble Stile Antico has produced another pure-voiced, imaginatively programmed disc”
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer
BBC Music Magazine
“Well-crafted and expertly sung”
