Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart

The Irish Times on Tune thy Musicke

Another winner from the 12-voice ensemble Stile Antico. The performing style is beautifully judged, unlaboured in terms of emphasis, but full of incident. Rhetorical details, clashes of dissonance, scrunchy false relations are astutely observed and all make their mark without distortion or exaggeration.

Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart

Tune thy Musicke in the San Francisco Chronicle

Alongside the more grandiose music composed for court and cathedral, 16th century England was a fertile ground for the creation of music for private worship services. This richly appealing new release by the excellent vocal ensemble Stile Antico offers a tour… All of the music is sung with clarity and precision.

Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart

MusicWeb on Tune thy Musicke

Collectors who have acquired previous releases by Stile Antico won’t be at all surprised to learn that the standard of performance is extremely high… This beautifully packaged and carefully documented release offers a most interesting perspective on the sacred vocal music of the period.

Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart

Ariama reviews Tune thy Musicke

You will be floored by the flat-out beauty of the music and performances. Nobody sings this music better than Stile Antico and anyone who has even a passing interest in vocal music should get this and their other albums. Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart is an early front runner for best of the year and my favorite Stile Antico album.
