Notes & Reviews:

This remarkable new recording from NPR darlings Trio Mediaeval features world premieres by David Lang and Betty Olivero. Lang's piece is particularly notable, as it provides the soundtrack to Youth, the latest film from Academy Award® winner Paolo Sorrentino starring Rachel Weisz, Michael Caine, and Harvey Keitel. With lifetime scans nearing 80,000 units, Trio Mediaeval have proven themselves a force to be reckoned with!

NPR
The members of Norway's Trio Mediaeval have a pure, lustrous sound... impeccable.

New York Times
An enchanting a cappella vocal group.
