Award-winning vocal ensemble Stile Antico, which has rapidly established itself as one of the UK's leading performers of early choral repertoire, presents a sequence of music for the seasons of Advent and Christmas by the two greatest composers of 16th century England - Thomas Tallis, and his friend and pupil William Byrd. Tallis's great mass "Puer natus est nobis" is based on a plainchant hymn marking the birth of Jesus, and around it the programme weaves motets for the seasons of Advent and Christmas, and in praise of the Virgin Mary.
