A Worcester Ladymass
Anna Maria Friman
voice Linn Andrea Fuglseth
voice Torunn Østrem Ossum
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."
