In Stile Moderno is an early-music ensemble dedicated to music of the seventeenth century. Founded in 2012 in Basel, Switzerland, by soprano Agnes Coakley and lutenist/cornettist Nathaniel Cox, they are named for the "modern style" of music which emerged in Italy around 1600. They combine fidelity to historical performance practice with a drive to make early music accessible and relevant to modern audiences. Both as a duo of lute and voice, and in larger formations with cornetto, organ, and plucked instruments, In Stile Moderno has charmed audiences with engaging performances in Boston, Vermont, and New York, as well as in concert series in Switzerland, Germany, and France. They are now based in Boston. Website:

Program description:

The masterful lutenist John Dowland (a favorite of Queen Elizabeth I), published the finest collection of lute songs of his era, a perfect balance of clarity, emotional depth, and contrapuntal wizardry. Beloved and lesser-known songs by Dowland and his contemporaries take on a new dimension in this concert, which will be performed using facsimile table-book editions of the music. In Stile Moderno appears here for the first time as a four-voice ensemble with lute, bringing to life the poetry of Elizabethan England with historical pronunciation. Otherwise unheard rhymes and puns jump to the ear, with a refreshingly direct, earthy timbre colors the language. Dowland's virtuosic writing is showcased by the lute and four-voice texture. Join us around the table for a feast of whimsical, melancholy and touching music.
