Stile Antico - Music inspired by Shakespeare

Event No: 25

Wed 1 June, 19:30 /// Exquisite vocal music from Shakespeare's time

Venue: St. Mary's Church, Richmond

In this enticing programme, devised to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the award-wining vocal ensemble explores settings of his words by his contemporaries Thomas Morley and Robert Johnson, as well as pieces by Thomas Tomkins, Orlando Gibbons, William Byrd and Thomas Weelkes. There are also some exquisite new settings of Shakespeare’s poetry by Nico Muhly and Huw Watkins, composed especially for Stile Antico.
