England has a rich choral tradition that dates back several centuries, and a group of young British singers formed Stile Antico to continue that tradition today. They focus on 16th century sacred music by composers such as John Sheppard, William Byrd, Giovanni Palestrina and Thomas Tallis, and their recordings and concerts have met with enthusiastic praise from audiences and critics all over the world. Two members of Stile Antico sat down with Suzanne Bona to talk about a few highlights of their career so far, including their 2010 debut at the BBC Proms and their tour with rock star Sting.
