Editorial Reviews

The award-winning, highly-acclaimed English choral ensemble Stile Antico presents Passion and Resurrection, an album featuring texts inspired by the dramatic events of Holy Week and Easter set to music by some of the greatest Renaissance composers from England and the Continent. Included are two settings of the poem Woefully arrayed - the first by William Cornysh (1465-1523) and the second composed especially for Stile Antico in 2009 by contemporary composer John McCabe. This is the work's first recording.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 15, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Stile Antico is an ensemble of young British singers, now established as one of the most original and exciting new voices in its field. The young ensemble, working without a director and conducting much of their own artistic research for their programs and concise and informative booklet notes. They are much in demand in concert, the group performs regularly throughout Europe and North America. Their performances have repeatedly been praised for their vitality and commitment, expressive lucidity and imaginative response to text.

Beautifully presented as always, this seventh recorded album focuses on the dramatic events of Holy Week, retracing in music the journey from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Twelve different composers are represented in an enthralling program encompassing the English, Flemish and Spanish Renaissance. At the heart of the disc are twin settings of the mediaeval carol Woefully Arrayed: one by William Cornysh (1465-1523), and one commissioned in 2009 especially for Stile Antico by British composer John McCabe (b. 1939) and recorded here for the first time. The other works are by the composers John Taverner, Thomas Tallis, Orlando Gibbons, William Byrd, Orlando de Lassus, Tomas Luis de Victoria, Cristobel de Morales and Jean l'Héritier.

The clarity and purity of ensemble is truly astonishing. This music seems to flow out from the peaks of a massive cathedral and creates a sense of awe not only musically but spiritually. Grady Harp, November 12

This is a lovely collection of Renaissance motets for Holy Week by English, Spanish and Franco-Flemish composers, with one modern inclusion. They are performed by the dozen young voices of the British early music ensemble Stile Antico. Every one of the pieces, arranged in an appropriate sequence progressing through Easter week and Resurrection, is of very high quality, as befits music inspired by such momentous and moving events.

The programme opens with William Cornysh's striking 'Woefully arrayed', to a text attributed to his contemporary John Skelton consisting of the imagined words and feelings of Christ on the cross. It's a vividly expressive piece, and in well-judged contrast it's followed by the uplifting Gibbons motet 'Hosanna to the Son of David'. Of the many other fine works here, my own favourites include Orlande de Lassus' 'In monte Oliveti' (track 4), in which the great Fleming demonstrates to perfection his absolute mastery of polyphony in the service of profound textual expression.

After the modern setting of 'Woefully arrayed' (7) by John McCabe (b. 1939), the mood turns more optimistic in the Resurrection pieces. John Taverner's 'Dum transisset' (8) is another glorious work, appropriately seeming to transport the listener heavenward with its almost equally beautiful text from St. Mark's gospel. Francisco Guerrero's 'Maria Magdalene', again, is truly lovely, its soaring opening motif followed by a series of bell-like descending phrases. If you are captivated by this motet, as I am, you'll surely appreciate fellow Spaniard Alonso Lobo's inspired parody mass based on Guerrero's piece Alonso Lobo: Missa Maria Magdalene.

Very beautifully sung and recorded. The inclusion of the contemporary piece by John McCabe, though consistent in subject mater of the lyrics, is rather jarring stylistically. It's the one track I deleted.
Regardless I highly recommend this.
