The remarkable Hapsburg dynasty, which at its peak ruled much of Europe and established the first truly global empire, is the inspiration for a fascinating and sumptuous journey through two centuries of Continental repertoire.
Stile Antico performs music closely associated with the Hapsburg monarchs, focusing first on the Empereror Maximilian, and then on the great Spanish rulers Charles V and Philip II, who gathered around them the finest Spanish and Flemish composers of their day. We encourter coronations, celebrations and funerals, and meet the Hapsburgs at play and at prayer, telling their story through repertoire ranging from Gombert's luxuriant mass to Lobo's exquisite expression of grief, and from the intricacies of Isaac to the exuberance of Morales.
