The festival features a celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Franco-Flemish genius Josquin des Prez, and is working in partnership with the Alamire Foundation to stage a long-awaited concert by vocal ensemble Stile Antico at York Minster.
Guest artists include: Rachel Podger; Jacob Heringman; Matthew Brook and Peter Seymour; the Monteverdi String Band, led by Oliver Webber; Steven Devine with Robin Bigwood; The Society of Strange & Ancient Instruments; EEEmerging artists La Vaghezza; Ensemble Clement Janequin; and Spanish Baroque ensemble L’Apothéose, winners of the 2019 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition.
