Stile Antico – The Mystic Rose

University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford, Wednesday 18 May, 8pm
To celebrate the start of the group’s residency at the University Church, Stile Antico gives the first performance of a new programme: The Mystic Rose. The programme explores glorious music written in honour of Mary, the Church’s dedicatee, with a selection of music from all over Europe, spanning three centuries from Josquin to Monteverdi. Alongside motets by the likes of Byrd, Parsons, Aleotti, Palestrina, and Lhéritier, are settings of the four great Marian antiphons written by Victoria, Palestrina, Lassus and William Cornysh, and the programme is crowned by Robert White’s magnificent setting of the Magnificat.

Tickets: £30, £20, and £10 (restricted view) available here. Full programme details available here.

Singing lessons opportunity with SCS soloist, Daniel Tate.
Daniel writes:
“Our difficult and unique times are playing havoc with our ability to be together, make music and sing together. But that is no reason we can’t be creative and make the most of the time we have. Alongside the virtual rehearsals that have continued on Zoom, there is now the opportunity to take some private virtual singing lessons each week. Professional local baritone Daniel Tate – who some of you will remember has sung as soloist with SCS in recent years – has several sessions available at convenient times and can be organised with you individually if you are interested to work around you. Everything can be provided, from sheet music to accompaniments, using the considerable possibilities afforded by Zoom software. 
The lessons will be tailored to you – Daniel, an experienced choral and ensemble singer, appreciates the specific demands made of you in the music sung in SCS, so the exercises and music should enhance your singing within the society. We know that times are hard for everyone, so these lessons will be provided at a discounted rate of just £30 for a 40 minute lesson – feel free to request longer if you like, but 40 minutes will definitely feel like a serious vocal workout! 
If you are interested and would like any more information, or to organise your first lesson, feel free to email Daniel directly at danielptate@gmail.com
