A Spanish Nativity

A Spanish Nativity

Each of the Lobo works further showcases Stile Antico’s sublime artistry, the singers’ silken voices rising and falling like new-fallen snow…

Winnipeg Free Press

The Spanish ‘Golden Age’ witnessed an astonishing musical flowering, fully worthy of the nation’s new-found preeminence on the world stage. Focusing on works for Christmas and Epiphany, Stile Antico explores this glittering musical treasury, drawing together an irresistible mix of sumptuous polyphony and infectiously joyful folk dances. The centrepiece of the is the superbly rich and luminous Missa Beata Dei genitrix Maria by Alonso Lobo. Interspersed between its movements are motets by Tomás Luis de Victoria, Francisco Guerrero and Christóbal de Morales, an exuberant ‘ensalada’ by Mateo Flecha, and classic villancicos – traditional carols using folk melodies.

This disc is released on 25th October 2019.
