A Mayflower Journey
Stile Antico joins the Dartington Big Choir for a spectacular programme of new and Renaissance choral music to mark the 400th anniversary of The Mayflower’s voyage from nearby Plymouth. Verse anthems and sacred settings by Gibbons, Weelkes, Tomkins and Schütz sit alongside seafaring hymns and prayers of thanksgiving by Campion, Amner and Byrd, and a new commission from American composer-in-residence, Nico Muhly, for Stile Antico, the Big Choir and instrumentalists from Fretwork and the City Musick, conducted by Stile Antico’s Andrew Griffiths.
