By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 28, 2005
Format: Audio CD
The Trio Mediaeval continues its fine reputation and tradition as an exemplary group capable of capturing the essence of the Gregorian chant while encouraging contemporary composers to emulate this classic form of music with new compositions. For this their third recoding the Trio continues to survey early music for a cappela voices and this time adds the tenor voice of John Potter as the ethereal leader in 'O Maria, stella maris, conductus'. The result is incandescent music making.

In addition to the medieval works for which they are well known, this album present the premiere recording of 'Missa Lumen de Lumine' by contemporary Korean composer Sunji Hong. While the twenty-five minute Mass incorporates the fundamental structure of the original chants, Hong suffuses the writing with subtle contemporary moods and passages that are astonishingly appropriate. The work is divided into Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei. The performance is impeccable contributing to the fact that Hong has amazing gifts as a composer. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp

The three singers of Trio Mediaeval are completely frank in acknowledging that the repertoire of 12/13th C music recorded on this CD was never sung, and probably never even heard, by women of the Medieval world. The motets and conductuses performed here come from English and French sources that link them quite specifically to monasteries and cathedrals where only men could have sung them, i.e. Notre Dame de Paris and Bury St. Edmonds in England. Despite that huge caveat, nevertheless, Trio Mediaeval sings with absolute commitment to historical insight into performance practices. One might declare that, if women has sung "Beata viscera", for instance, they would have tried to sing it just like this ... and if they had the talent, just as well! As the CD notes declare: "all modern performances create a modern sound world, after all."

And they do sing very, very well, these three women! To my ears, they are far more skilled and more affective than their better-known competitors, 'Anonymous 4'. They've studied and worked with Paul Hillier, and they've honed their vocal technique by singing together for many years now. Their ensemble is impeccable, and each voice of the trio is a voice one could listen to for eternity, if eternity were open to mortals. The seven tracks of bona fide Medieval polyphony are well chosen NOT to sound all the same, to flow from serenity to ecstasy.

But authentic early polyphony occupies only half of this CD. The second half is a mass -- Missa Lumen di Lumine -- written for the Trio Mediaeval in 2002 by a Korean woman composer Songgji Hong. Like works by contemporary Baltic composers such as Arvo Pärt, it is inspired by medieval aesthetics and affect, but it's not medieval in music theory.

Trio Mediaeval can easily claim the title of the best early music female group worldwide.

This is simply great and moving music and while there is a prevailing sense of somber piety throughout, there is enough variety in each selection to keep the listener thoroughly engaged. Trio Mediaeval's deeply expressive singing and virtuoso technique are up to the highest standards and you have to consider that some of the pieces make rather pressing demands on the Scandinavian singers.

ECM proved once more that, even in early music works (if not particuraly in this genre), provides unprecedented quality of performance in every sense.

What a beautiful blending of voices in the style of the Medieval chant... we could all be closet Catholics after listening to this! The voices are so well-matched, and the style so transcendant.
