Trio Mediaeval is a Norwegian ensemble that has captivated audiences worldwide with a songbook spanning medieval music, traditional Norwegian ballads and contemporary works.
The three unique voices blend together with seamless and unnerving accuracy, but for all the hauntingly pure harmonies and vocal finesse, the trio deliver songs from a bygone era with a tenderness that melts away the centuries.
Founded in Oslo in 1997, the group’s first album, Words of the Angel, immediately reached Billboard’s Top 10 Bestseller list, while Folk Songs, an intimate collection of Norwegian folk songs, won a Grammy nomination in 2008.
Trio Mediaeval’s latest recording, A Worcester Ladymass, was elected as one of the Best of New Releases 2011 by the German Record Critic’s Award.
While spreading the a capella gospel, the ensemble has performed in cathedrals, monasteries, farms, and industrial spaces as well as prestigious halls such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Vienna Konzerthaus.
