The magnificently decorated 15th century choir book, known as the Old Hall Manuscript, was lost for almost 400 years until it resurfaced in a Catholic seminary at the end of the 19th century.
As the largest surviving collection of medieval motets and Mass settings, it immediately became the most famous source for English music of the period. It was written primarily by a single scribe to ensure that the music of his fellow singers was not forgotten.
Many of them are known only from this manuscript, and on this album they find their voices again after more than half a millennium of silence, transformed by the singing of Trio Mediæval accompanied by Catalina Vicens, alongside new music by David Lang and Marianne Reidarsdatter Eriksen.
Trio Mediæval has been praised as a “fascinating journey with music of timeless beauty.” The highly acclaimed first album Words of the Angel from 2001 introduced the group to the elite circles of early music ensembles and made them known to a broad international audience.
Founded in 1997, the Grammy-nominated vocal ensemble consists of founding members Linn Andrea Fuglseth and Anna Maria Friman, and Jorunn Lovise Husan, who joined the group in 2018.
The trio Mediæval has recorded eight albums for ECM Records. An Old Hall Ladymass is their second release on the Norwegian label 2L after Solacium. It was produced by Morten Lindberg and John Potter.
