Stile Antico's programme brings to life the battle for the Christian souls between the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation in the 1500s and beyond. It centres on William Byrd's thrilling Vigilate - Jesus's command to his disciples and all nations to watch for Christ's second coming. Its musical setting by a Catholic composer in a Protestant country conceals many coded messages to Byrd's co-religionists.
