England’s Stile Antico are peerless purveyors of Renaissance polyphonic music

Fri 3/3, 7:30 PM, Rockefeller Chapel, University of Chicago, 5850 S. Woodlawn, $35, $5 students, all-ages

    England's Stile Antico are peerless purveyors of Renaissance polyphonic music
    I won't pretend to know much about Renaissance vocal music, but I will say that encountering Divine Theatre: Sacred Motets by Giaches de Wert (Harmonia Mundi), the new album by veteran British vocal ensemble Stile Antico, certainly has me challenging my ignorance.

    Ask Geoffrey: The Warrior Walls of General Jones Armory
    The walls of a South Side armory tell the history of warriors throughout the ages.
