"Five Stars ... the three female vocalists blend Norwegian folk tunes with English polyphonic carols with Italian laude and create a successful tapestry that is texturally as well as melodically compelling throughout ... highly recommended.”
- Early Music Today

Trio Mediaeval offers this collection of polyphony from the medieval to the modern, named after the North Wind. The title Aquilonis is a reference to the Nordic roots of the singers as well as the bracing purity of their voices; the album’s repertoire travels from Iceland to Italy, from north to south like the Aquilonis wind. In creatively realizing Icelandic chant from the Middle Ages, the trio members accompany their vocals with discreetly textural instrumentation. The group also arranges 12th century Italian sacred pieces and sings 15th century English carols with timeless folk melodies in the air. From the contemporary age come works by Swedish composer Anders Jormin, American William Brooks and Englishman Andrew Smith.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
