The Trio Mediaeval made a powerful impact in 2001 with their debut album “Words of the Angel”, their highly distinctive "Scandinavian" vocal sound bringing something fresh to the performance of sacred music. “Soir, dit-elle”, with equal persuasiveness, reverses the ratio of old to new music... The uniqueness of their vocal blend has encouraged composers Gavin Bryars, Ivan Moody, Andrew Smith and Oleh Harkavyy to write new music for the three women singers. Contemporary works are here interwoven with the “Alma redemtoris” mass of Leonel Power, the great English composer and theorist who ranks alongside Dunstable as one of the defining forces of 15th century sacred music.
