Among the many endeavors funded by the Carnegie UK Trust (a group that is celebrating its centenary), their publication of an anthology entitled Tudor Church Music in the 1920s transformed the musical life of an entire nation. For the first time, a significant body of the greatest Tudor compositions became accessible to scholars, performers and listeners alike. On The Phoenix Rising, the acclaimed choral ensemble Stile Antico presents a varied selection of the finest pieces from the collection in a program centered around William Byrd's masterful five-part mass.
