Overview

For their fifth album, young British choral stars Stile Antico turn to Thomas Tallis's magnificent seven-part Christmas Mass, based on the 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" (from the Gradualia of 1605), responsories by Taverner and Sheppard, Robert White's exuberant setting of the Magnificat, and Tallis's own sublime Videte miraculum.

All of Stile Antico's previous recordings for Harmonia Mundi have charted on Billboard and the group has twice earned the Diapason d'Or de l'année, the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and twice received Grammy nominations. Their phenomenally successful 2009 release Song of Songs was the winner of a 2009 Gramophone award. From the Label
