Free ‘Sacred or Profane?’ tickets for students

15 March, 2015

We are delighted to be able to offer ten tickets free of charge to those in full-time education for this Thursday’s Sacred or Profane? performance at St Peter’s, Eaton Square, London. These tickets are made available through the generosity of the Stile Antico Foundation, as part of its mission to increase access to and appreciation of high-quality choral performance.

The concert marks the launch of Stile Antico’s new programme Sacred or Profane?, which explores the surprisingly fluid boundaries between religious and secular music in the Renaissance. Composers often drew on folk-songs and chansons – some of them seemingly inappropriate for the church – in creating new pieces of sacred music. Stile Antico performs these religious works together with their secular ‘parents’, alongside sacred re-textings of some of Monteverdi’s most sensuous madrigals. Full programme details are available here.

To apply for a ticket, please email tickets@stileantico.co.uk with your request. Tickets will be allocated on a strictly first-come, first-served basis, one ticket only per applicant. This offer is available until all ten tickets have been claimed, or until the end of Tuesday 17th March.
