Breaking the Habit: Music by and for Women in Renaissance Europe
Santa Barbara Debut
Early Music Vocal Ensemble
“Perhaps the most ravishing sound I heard this year.” – Alex Ross, The New Yorker
The three-time Grammy-nominated group Stile Antico is one of the world’s finest vocal ensembles, renowned for vibrant and expressive performances of Renaissance polyphony. Working without a conductor, this innovative 12-member ensemble presents fresh material, whether drawing out thematic connections between works to shine new light on early music, or premiering new works. Based in London, Stile Antico makes its Santa Barbara debut with a performance showcasing their highly-praised immediacy, expressive commitment, sensitive and imaginative response to text and compelling programming.
