Ranked by Gramophone as one of the world's top 20 choirs, Stile Antico from the U.K. is widely recognised as one of today's most outstanding and creative vocal ensembles. Working without a conductor, the singers perform as chamber musicians in a seamless rapport. The internationally acclaimed choir has won numerous awards with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances, and been nominated thrice for the Grammy Awards. Committed to promoting polyphonic vocal works of the 16th and 17th century, the ensemble endeavours to revitalise early music and let it shine anew through a thoughtful, well-orchestrated repertoire and thematic planning.

Stile Antico will present two different programmes at this year's Music Festival. Queen of Muses features a selection of British Renaissance music composed during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Let us peek into the royal family's tussles and palace secrets of the House of Tudor through the love songs by great composers.

Duration: approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, including one interval
