Press Quotes

Stile Antico was at its best, marshaling color, texture, and pacing to give shape to music that can otherwise seem gorgeous and inert. The Agnus Dei was one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard.

David Weininger, The Boston Globe

An ensemble of breathtaking freshness, vitality and balance.

Steve Smith, New York Times

In short, this was a cappella heaven.

Michael Church, The Independent

Perhaps the most ravishing sound I heard this year.

Alex Ross, The New Yorker

A magnificent display of the very best kind of polyphonic music.

Anthony Pryer, BBC Music Magazine

The real test of musicians whose work you’ve loved on recordings is whether they sound as good in person. Stile Antico passed that test with a perfectly exquisite performance.

Sarah Bryan Millar, St Louis Post-Dispatch

Stile Antico is arguably the finest this country has produced… Seemingly everything they perform is elevated to a new level of perfection.

David Denton, Yorkshire Post

Stile Antico represents the future of serious, unhyped, technically polished, stylistically attuned, and musically affecting choral performance.

David Vernier, Classics Today

The singing is staggeringly beautiful, the balance meticulous.

SP, The Sunday Times

Some of the most stunningly beautiful and moving choral singing I have ever heard.

GATENS, American Record Guide

The monastery was plunged into a stunned silence from which emanated only the crystalline and ethereal voices of Stile Antico, lifting the audience to an atmosphere of sublime spirituality, forgetting for a moment the corporeal nature of their existence.

Gonzalo Roldán Herencia, Granada Hoy

Tudor music thrills anew, thanks to the artistry and musicianship of this top British choir.

William Dart, New Zealand Herald

As this thrilling concert proved, Stile Antico is anything but antique. Their sound has the urgency and freshness you get from young voices, and an amazing rhythmic vitality.

Ivan Hewitt, The Daily Telegraph

Stile Antico is capable of great nuance, emphasis, and expression, and they go straight to the heart of each concentrated musical experience… an evening of consistently magnificent music-making.

David Gordon Duke, Vancouver Sun

Superior music-making ruled in the lunchtime Prom… Breasts, pomegranates, apples, honey: the sensuous vocabulary vibrated with that mellifluous vocal bliss only possible with long rehearsals, close listening and constant eye contact… Stile Antico’s pitch, unanimity and beauty never wavered.

Geoff Brown, The Times
