Stile Antico

Thomas Tallis: Mass Puer Natus Est
Robert White: Magnificat
John Sheppard: Verbum Caro
works by Taverner, Byrd, etc.

Stile Antico's newest programme centres on Thomas Tallis's magnificent seven-part ‘Christmas' Mass, based on the festive plainchant Puer natus est (‘A boy is born'). The mass is interspersed with seasonal Tudor music, including William Byrd's exquisite Propers for the fourth Sunday of Advent, responsories by Taverner and Sheppard, Robert White's exuberant setting of the Magnificat, and Tallis's own sublime Videte miraculum.
