Worcester Ladymass & Gavin Bryars

Trio Mediaeval
Description:
The first new Trio Mediaeval album in four years (since Folk Songs), and the first since Stella Maris (2005) to feature medieval sacred music, A Worcester Ladymass presents a reconstruction of a 13th century votive Mass to the Virgin Mary, based on manuscripts and fragments originating in a Benedictine Abbey in the English Midlands. Inserted amid the medieval music are a Credo and Benedicamus Domino specially written for this programme by Gavin Bryars, one of several leading contemporary composers who have championed the Trio.

The old and the new, literally and conceptually, intermingle in the work of this vocal ensemble. "We feel that performing mediaeval music today gives us the freedom to let our imagination and ideas flow, as though we are creating contemporary music," says Anna Maria Friman. In this spirit the group explores the polyphonic movements of the Mass, the intricately interweaving voices of motets and the declamatory tone of the Conductus.
