Hear music by the ethereal and precise Trio Medieval on this New Sounds program. In addition to arrangements of Nordic folk songs, this trio of women gives contemporary lift to medieval ballads and masses from England, France and Norway. Plus, listen to immensely moving selections from the new seven part cantata by Vladimir Godar, "Mater," featuring the cultivated folk vocal stylings of Iva Bittova. And much more.

Now that Ear is gone, are there any magazines devoted to the kind if new music you play? Also what is the archived program that has the entire theme song played? Thank you John Christiano
