Shakespeare’s plays and poetry brim with references to music. In this special programme one of the UK’s elite vocal ensembles, Stile Antico, present a captivating and theatrical selection of music painting a fascinating picture of the musical world surrounding Shakespeare. Stile Antico explore rare surviving settings of his words by his contemporaries Thomas Morley and Robert Johnson, settings linked to Shakespeare’s two royal patrons, Queen Elizabeth I and King James I, music connected to the great events of his lifetime and two new commissions of Shakespeare texts by composers Nico Muhly & Huw Watkins.

An ensemble of young British singers, Stile Antico is now established internationally as one of the most original and exciting voices in its eld. The ensemble celebrated its 10th Anniversary during 2015.
