Amongst the many endeavours funded by the Carnegie Trust (marking its centenary in 2013) was the publication and editing of Tudor Church Music in ten large folio volumes of music, with 50 performing pieces published individually. This had a considerable impact on the revival of this important music: for the first time a significant body of the greatest Tudor compositions became accessible to scholars, performers and listeners having languished in cathedrals, museums and colleges. It also inspired a further generation of English composers after its resurrection including Howells, Britten and Vaughan Williams.

Stile Antico presents a varied selection of the finest pieces from Tudor Church Music in a programme centred around William Byrd’s masterful five-part mass.

Exquisitely rendered by the Stile Antico consort, the works range chronologically from John Taverner's O Splendor Gloriae, in which the Eton Choirbook style is still audible, to Orlando Gibbons' O Clap Your Hands Together, where Psalm 47 is brilliantly set in a cascade of repetitions thatdevelops intense hypnoticpower. The various sections of William Byrd's Mass for Five Voices are interspersed among works by Thomas Tallis, Thomas Morley and Robert White.
