Trio Mediaeval new release and tour

Trio Mediaeval is back with a new album of sacred music released on March 15, 2011.

Trio Mediaeval
A Worcester Ladymass
Anna Maria Friman
Linn Andrea Fuglseth voice
Torunn Ă˜strem Ossum voice

Few vocal ensembles produce quite as beautiful and finely blended a sound as this Norwegian trio…
Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

Oslo’s Trio Mediaeval presents a reconstruction of a 13th century votive Mass to the Virgin Mary, based on surviving manuscripts from a Benedectine Abbey in the English Midlands. Inserted amid the medieval music are a Credo and Benedicamus Domino specially composed for this program by Gavin Bryars. Indeed, the old and the new intermingle in the work of this vocal ensemble. Anna Maria Friman: “The members of Trio Mediaeval feel that performing mediaeval music today gives us the freedom to let our imagination and ideas flow, as though we are creating contemporary music.”

Listen to a few sample tracks here:
