Trio Mediaeval & Arve Henriksen
From

Listen to music from the unexpected chart-topping release, Officium (1994)- a combination of early music vocals of the Hilliard Ensemble and improvising Norwegian sax player, Jan Garbarek. There’s also music from the Monks of Ligugé Abbey and French  improvising tuba (and serpent) player Michel Godard, along with still another collaborative record in a similar vein between the early music vocalists of Trio Mediaeval and Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen.  From the brilliant new record, Rímur of seventeen chants, hymns, folk songs and improvisations based on ancient Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish sources, hear the Swedish "St. Birgitta Hymn."

Hear the multiple versions of “Parce Mihi Domine”(Spare me, O Lord) from the sacred & spacious record Officium; each new take contains new lines of Jan Garbarek’s ethereal saxophone.  Plus, listen to an Icelandic folk song in two versions, one from the excellent collection, Rímur, and the other from the film Angels Of The Universe (Englar Alheimsins),with music by film score composer Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson & featuring Sigur Rós.
