Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart: Tudor & Jacobean music for private devotion

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)
