The 15th century choir book known as the Old Hall manuscript was lost to history for the best part of 400 years. The largest surviving collection of medieval motets and mass movements, it is the most celebrated source of English music of the period. Trio Mediaeval performs this music in the company of organetto player Catalina Vicens, alongside new music by Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen and David Lang.
Trio Mediaeval perform pieces for female voices by the iconic Hildegard von Bingen and anonymous composers at Santa Maria la Real de Las Huelgas, one of the most prestigious convents in medieval Spain. Known for their creative interpretations of medieval polyphony, the Trio takes us into more ancient territory, where the evolving solo song merges into the vibrant soundscapes of polyphony.
Trio Mediæval continue their colorful journeys into both the past and the future with a program of music by the iconic Hildegard von Bingen interspersed with pieces written for them by American composers David Lang and William Brooks, and the Norwegian composer Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen.
