Stile Antico

A Divine Hope

A Divine Hope

Telling the story of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Stile Antico descends with Il Divino into Hell, journeys together through Purgatory, and finally arrives at the gates of Heaven. Renaissance madrigals and sacred music by composers such as Victoria, Palestrina and Morales illustrate the way, with music and prayers which the poet features in his epic verse. The music is punctuated by short sections of the Divine Comedy, and texts by Dante himself, set to music by Lazzaschi and Merulo, also narrate the story. At the pinnacle of heaven we meet the Virgin Mary in Tomas Luis de Victoria’s glorious 12-part Magnificat.
