Today marks the launch of our debut recording on Decca Classics. Devoted entirely to Josquin, it is the first in a trilogy of albums marking the anniversaries of some of the greatest composers of the Renaissance.
Ahead of the release of our Decca Classics debut ‘The Golden Renaissance: Josquin’, find out about the career of this extraordinary composer, and why his music still casts such a spell today.
We’re delighted that Stile Antico will once again take part in the wonderful Live From London festival, a groundbreaking series of concerts streamed weekly in superb HD from the Voces8 Centre in the City of London.
