In Paradisum: Swansongs and Memorials

by the Renaissance Masters

British vocal ensemble Stile Antico returns to Boston after their thrilling North American début at the 2009 Boston Early Music Festival. Lauded for their glorious singing - a melding of emotion, rhythmic precision, and sublime intonation - these dozen self-directed voices will offer a moving program featuring musical meditations on themes of life and loss by Byrd, Josquin, Sheppard, Schütz, Lassus, and others.

Free pre-concert talk at 7pm
