The album celebrates the inauguration of the Tudor Church Music edition in 1922
Early music vocal ensemble Stile Antico have teamed up with the Carnegie UK Trust, which this year marks its 100th anniversary, to record ‘The Phoenix Rising’ for Harmonia Mundi USA. The disc of works by John Taverner, Thomas Tallis, Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Morley, Robert White and William Byrd celebrates the inauguration of Tudor Church Music in 1922 - a ten-volume edition of works by Tudor composers, collated and edited by the Trust, which had languished unperformed for centuries. The recording is released on July 29.
The group will also tour the works in the UK and Ireland during August, September and November. For details visit the Stile Antico website.
You can also hear an excerpt from 'The Phoenix Rising' on the Gramophone Player.
