Notes & Reviews:

The Trinity Carol Roll (Trinity College, Cambridge) is the earliest known source for the English polyphony carol. The thirteen works preserved therein include the patriotic "Agincourt" carol, celebrating Henry V's victory of the French 1415, and the most famous of all early English carols, "Ther is no rose." This performance offers a fresh take on mediaeval instrumentation and includes gothic harp, psaltry, plectrum lute, recorder, and ethereal gemshorn.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
It was Noah Greenberg who first opened up this literature to collectors with his groundbreaking recordings for American Decca back in the Old Stone Age of "early music" exploration. The first is a direct plunge into the earliest and most important source of the literature, what is known as the Trinity Carol Roll preserved at Trinity College, Cambridge University, which contains 13 archetypal specimens of the genre. All of those are given here, plus five items from other sources. Lawrence-King is also present much of the time, and the harp participations are modest.
