This compilation disc is an ideal introduction to their work: both to their refreshing approach to programming and to the refined but vigorous quality of their sound.Fiona Maddocks, The Observer (21 June, 2015)

Dearest Stile Antico! Congratulations on your ten, magnificent, harmonious years! May you continue to bring your glorious voices in beautiful song to the world, which so desperately needs it! BRAVI!
To celebrate Stile Antico’s tenth anniversary as a professional ensemble, Harmonia Mundi released this special compilation of music drawn from the group’s first nine recordings. The twelve members of the group each chose a single track, and wrote about it in the accompanying booklet. The resulting album is an exquisite sampler of Renaissance polyphony, full of contrast and colour and ideal for those encountering this repertoire, or Stile Antico’s work, for the first time.
