Notes & Reviews:

"The same mixture of old and new is the essence of the disc, sung with that luminous blend of passion and precision that makes composers such as myself enjoy writing for these three singers so much. The medieval material this time is centred on the conductus, both the English and the French variety. Trio Mediaeval are completely at home in this repertoire and the sequence has been particularly well chosen to show off different aspects of the pieces, with two monumental Notre Dame works as the climax: the anonymous Veni Creator Spiritus and Perotin's astounding Dum sigillum. The Trio are at their suavest here and there is no hint of any of the bumpiness that can come so often with medieval triple time, though at the same time there is also no loss of that rhythmic buoyancy so essential to this repertoire." -Gramophone

New York Times
Three hip and lively Scandinavian women.... All three singers, though highly individual in vocal colour and approach, can function as high-flying sopranos, pure and bright. Ms Ossum, possessing a particularly wide range, anchors the harmonies with rich and velvety lower notes.
