Stile Antico (joined by Fretwork) explores a long-neglected repertory: the wealth of Tudor and Jacobean sacred music written for domestic devotion, rather than for church worship. Culled from collections intended for use in private homes, these pieces by Tomkins, Campion, Byrd, Tallis, Dowland, Gibbons and others, offer a unique insight into the turbulent religious climate of the time and the thriving musical culture at its heart. "An ensemble of breathtaking freshness, vitality and balance" (The New York Times)

Avec ce disque consacré à la musique sacrée anglaise, Stile Antico (rejoint pour l'occasion par Fretwork) jouxte la révolution élisabéthaine pour mettre au jour un répertoire longtemps négligé: la musique dévotionnelle d'ordre privé, entre l'époque des Tudors et le règne de James Stuart. Ces pièces de Tomkins, Campion, Byrd, Tallis, Dowland ou Gibbons offrent un point de vue unique sur la naissance d'une culture musicale à part entière, par-delà la violence du climat religieux et les confrontations idéologiques qui balayèrent l'Angleterre en ce temps.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
