    Trio Mediaeval "Aquilonis"; July 6th - July 12th

    All this week, we’ll be listening to the latest Trio Mediaeval CD. “Aquilonis” comprises Icelandic chant, early Italian sacred songs, contemporary Swedish works, 15th-century English carols and Norwegian folk melodies; and it’s the first time the singers have accompanied themselves on instruments.
