Synopsis

Product Description
On Tune thy Musicke to thy Hart, the choral ensemble Stile Antico, joined by the acclaimed viol consort Fretwork, explores a long- neglected repertory: the wealth of Tudor and Jacobean sacred music written for domestic devotion, rather than for church worship. Culled from collections intended for use in private homes, these pieces by Tomkins, Campion, Byrd, Tallis, Dowland, Gibbons and others, offer a unique insight into the turbulent religious climate of the time and the thriving musical culture at its heart. The
album features a capella and accompanied vocal works framed by instrumental solos played by Fretwork.
