Stile Antico Foundation

Launched in 2014, the Stile Antico Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) dedicated to the advancement and nurturing of choral music. The Foundation, which is financially and structurally independent of Stile Antico, seeks to increase knowledge and appreciation of choral music in several ways:

  • by supporting performances and the development of new programmes, principally, though not exclusively, by Stile Antico;
  • by supporting workshops and educational projects designed to promote appreciation of choral music at little or no cost to participants;
  • by making possible the publication of musical editions and scholarly articles.

The Foundation administers the Friends of Stile Antico, enabling it to make grants to Stile Antico and others in line with these aims. Its immediate projects include a series of Stile Antico workshops on Renaissance repertoire in an inner-London comprehensive school . Longer-term goals include supporting new programmes, the publishing of Stile Antico editions, bursaries for young singers and the commissioning of new works.

The Foundation is grateful for generous support provided by the Brian Mitchell Charitable Settlement.

The Foundation takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. Please click here to view its policy.

Stile Antico is always interested to hear from individuals or companies considering sponsoring any aspect of the group’s activities, either directly or through gifts in kind (for example, discounted travel or accommodation). To discuss these opportunities, and what we are able to offer in return, please contact


By choosing to leave a gift to the Stile Antico Foundation after providing for your family and loved ones, you will help to keep Renaissance music alive for the next generation and beyond. Just 1% of an estate can make a huge difference to an organisation like ours, and leaving 10% or more of your estate to charity typically reduces your Inheritance Tax rate. A legacy gift can make a tangible and enduring difference without costing a penny during your lifetime. Unrestricted legacies are especially valuable, as they allow the Foundation to allocate your gift to the area of greatest need at the time.


If you would like to discuss leaving a gift in your Will, and for more information on how we acknowledge such impactful pledges, please contact
