Divine Consolations: music of reflection and hope

“An ensemble of breathtaking freshness, vitality and balance” is how the New York Times summed up the British consort Stile Antico, an ensemble of twelve singers without a conductor which has won numerous awards in the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands for its recordings. In this programme, the group pairs two well-known motets by Bach with music by his great predecessor Heinrich Schütz – including the moving Musikalische Exequien of 1636, a “German requiem” for an aristocratic friend.

NB: no interval - performance due to end c 9.10pm
