Solacium is Trio Mediaeval’s collection of hymns and lullabies. Intimate songs as old as time and as new as tomorrow. This is music with no boundaries, celebrating our common humanity. We’ll never know the first song or the first singer, and we’ll never know what they sang about.
If time could unwind and we could hear it, we would witness a mother or a father singing the first lullaby. When we sing a hymn or a lullaby, we become a link in a chain that began in the unknowable past and will stretch into the infinite future: a timeless continuum of solace and comfort. Solacium is their first release from 2L, and their first album at the NativeDSD Music Store in Stereo and 5.1 Channel Surround Sound DSD and DXD.
The new lullabies by Anders Jormin and Sinikka Langeland began in their heads as little musical gifts for real children and are here sung for all of us by three singers who have sung many a lullaby to their own children, aided and abetted on this album by Trygve Seim, and Mats Eilertsen, fathers both.
Formed in 1997, the Grammy nominated vocal ensemble consists of founder members Linn Andrea Fuglseth and Anna Maria Friman, and Jorunn Lovise Husan who joined the group in 2018. Hailed as a “fascinating journey with music of timeless beauty”, Trio Mediæval’s highly acclaimed first album Words of the Angel in 2001 launched the group into the elite circles of early music ensembles and introduced them to a broad international audience.
