Stile Antico presents an exciting new programme for 2020, 'The Journey of the Mayflower', with extraordinary music and readings.
*Marking the 400th anniversary of the famous voyage across the Atlantic*
2020 marks 400 years since William Bradford and his fellow pilgrims set out on their fateful journey across the Atlantic in the Mayflower, seeking freedom from persecution. England in 1620 was a country rife with religious and political division, standing on the brink of civil war. But the age also spawned some of the finest music ever composed in the land, with Gibbons, Tomkins and the aged Byrd overseeing the late flowering of the English musical Renaissance. This programme explores the journey the pilgrims took - from Northern England to Leiden and Southampton, before setting sail for modern day Massachusetts - using music of the time, interspersed with first hand accounts from the pilgrims themselves.
