Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review, December 2014
[a] well-chosen and beautifully recorded anthology of music for the Hapsburg court ... The programme is extremely well conceived, and the booklet beautifully presented.

Early Music Today, December 2014
A welcome return for Stile Antico to this continental repertoire ... if this is the music of melancholy, who needs to be happy?

MusicWeb International, 3rd February 2015
Exciting and beautiful ... Not only are the performances magically blended, but the recording captures this beautifully and weaves a web of sound around the listener, whether it's in stereo or surround. In short, very good indeed.

Whether they are performing at the BBC Proms or alongside rock icon Sting, the members of Stile Antico blend musical passion with a clarity and technical finesse that never disappoints. The Hapsburgs, who at their peak ruled much of Europe and established the first truly global empire, are the inspiration for the group's latest release entitled From the Imperial Court. The story of this powerful dynasty is told through works by composers including Gombert, Lobo, Isaac and Morales.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
Stile Antico reinforce their already formidable reputation: intonation and balance are always flawless; the sound of the voices is glorious, precise and absolutely crystal-clear; the music always moves along effortlessly with well-judged moments of pressure and relaxation, despite their having no conductor.

Sunday Times, 14th September 2014
The young British ensemble Stile Antico sing exquisitely.

The Observer, 14th September 2014
The antique style of the conductorless choir Stile Antico is now familiar: impeccably tuned, carefully moulded, beautifully presented singing of intelligently planned anthologies...there is marvellously varied and powerful music here - more so than the rather uniform declamation suggests.

Choir & Organ, November 2014
Superbly recorded, it is a masterclass in outstanding breadth of interpretation, balance and total teamwork ... the group's 'worker's co-operative' ethos continues to reap dividends with, on this occasion, results almost approaching perfection.
