Its sound creamy and warm, the group sings with a smooth blend that nevertheless allows individual voices to pierce through: a plangent alto here, a slightly husky bass there… The final selection, Taverner’s “O splendor gloriae,” began as a duet and then built through the ensemble to a shining “Amen.”Zachary Woolfe, New York Times (9 March, 2014)
Katie’s foody foray
“One thing that never disappoints when we tour to the USA is the food. From enormous pepperoni pizzas to racks of BBQ ribs, clam chowder in Boston to ‘grits’, the savoury corn-based porridge popular in the mid-Western and Southern states, there is always something to surprise even the most well-travelled of tastebuds.
“We have had some... continued
Becky blogs in Boston
“Our first full day of the tour saw us celebrate our fiftieth concert in the US! We awoke to brilliant sunshine and blue skies – well, most of us woke first in the very early hours of the morning, as the day was beginning back at home, but managed to doze off again until Boston morning began. Talk at breakfast was... continued
“As big travel days go, yesterday was pretty good. We breezed through Terminal 5, British Airways delivered us on time and no one was interrogated by a border officer on arrival. For most of us, the one redeeming feature of being stuck in a tin can for... continued
Florida is nothing compared to Helen’s little ray of sunshine!
“While the others are jetting off stateside I’m sadly going to be left at home holding the baby. Literally.
Thomas was born on the 6th of February so he’s exactly a month old today, and we thought that might be a little early to inflict his first transatlantic flight on... continued
Kate shares some thoughts on the programme we’ll be performing.
“On this tour, for the first time ever on a States trip, we will be taking just one programme – The Phoenix Rising. It is always a real pleasure to repeat the same programme in different venues, especially when it is packed full of some of our favourite music.
“Andrew gave you a... continued
Will looks forward to a landmark US concert…
“So, here we go again! This Thursday sees Stile Antico head across the big pond for our 9th tour of the US. It’s something we all look forward to very much, since we always receive a warm reception from audiences, hosts, and cabin crew; it’s wonderful to meet new people and visit new places;... continued

Last night’s concert at the University of New Hampshire brought to an end our ten-day visit to the US. We celebrated with some excellent wines courtesy of Bill Kempster at UNH, and then travelled down to Boston this morning for our flight home. After three happy hours spent eating lobster and riding the water taxi to the airport, we’re now... continued
Stile Antico’s newest blogger puts the world to rights…
“Well hello there y’all! I am nearly at the end of my grand tour of the States, so thought it was about time I let you know how I am getting on. As you probably know, I was lucky enough to win the recent World’s Bonniest Baby competition, and the prize was a trip to America, where would... continued
