Middle Aged

Trio Mediaeval produces some of the most beautiful music I've heard in a long time. When I heard them on the radio recently, it was truly a driveway moment. I waited in the car in a parking lot until the DJ announced who they were. The three sopranos sing mainly early music, but also perform folk and contemporary classical music. For the most part they sing unaccompanied. And since they're on the ECM label, their recordings are perfectly flawless. They were formed in Oslo, Norway in 1997, and have toured extensively both in Europe and the United States.
