Trio Mediæval


Divine voices from the medieval to the contemporary.

The choir book known as the Old Hall manuscript was lost to history for the best part of 400 years until its reappearance in a Catholic seminary at the end of the 19th century. The beautiful manuscript was the largest surviving collection of medieval motets and mass movements, and after its rediscovery it quickly became a central and celebrated source of English music of the period.

On Trio Mediæval's album An Old Hall Ladymass (2023), the manuscript finds its female voices. The trio consists of Linn Andrea Fuglseth, Anna Maria Friman-Henriksen and Jorunn Lovise Husan, in the company of Catalina Vicens on the medieval instrument organetto. Side by side with medieval music, the programme is expanded with new music by David Lang and Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen.

Formed in 1997, Trio Mediæval's acclaimed debut album Words of the Angel (2001) launched the group into the elite circles of early music ensembles and introduced them to a broad international audience.

"It has been said before, and I'll say it again: Trio Mediæval's singing is divine." – BALLADE
