Part 2 - Stile Antico - Music-drama commemorates 400 years since the sailing of the Mayflower

 

World-renowned vocal ensemble Stile Antico have created a unique music-drama film exploring the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims exactly 400 years after they set sail from Plymouth.

 

Using a script written for the group by dramatist Katharine Armitage, the performance breathes life into the Pilgrims and the Mayflower crew. The drama is woven around extracts from ‘Of Plimouth Plantation’, the diary of William Bradford.

Matching the drama with music from the time of the Pilgrims has helped us to bring the amazing story to life, including musical gems by William Byrd, Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tomkins and others.

 

“A miraculous celebration of choral music of the English Renaissance… it was ravishing.”Colin Clarke, Seen and Heard International
