Info for A Medieval Christmas, Songs from the Netherlands from 15th and 16th century manuscripts



On this album Trigon sings Christmas carols from 15th and 16th century manuscripts of the Modern Devotion movement. These include manuscripts from a convent near Utrecht (Berlin 190), one from the former Soeterbeeck convent, the Tongeren Manuscript and a manuscript from Zwolle / the IJssel Valley. Trigon also sings two songs found in a manuscript from the ‘rondebegynhof’, the encircled Beguinage in Amsterdam, dating from the start of the 17th century.

The Modern Devotion was a movement of spiritual revival within the medieval Roman Catholic Church that arose at the end of the 14th century. This was a period of great unrest. The Plague was a regular scourge in all of Western Europe and wars were forever being waged. Adherents of the Modern Devotion, with their doctrine of following Christ’s example, spread spiritual relief and comfort. …

Trigon Ensemble


TRIGON ensemble
is specialized in studying and performing medieval spiritual music. How medieval music sounded at the time no one can really know. What we can do is study the contemporary treatises that were written on the subject. And we can get as close as possible to the music by studying the original sources. that is why TRIGON studies and sings from these original scores, as found in manuscripts.

TRIGON is the name of a movement symbol in Gregorian chant, also known as a Neum. It describes a lightly sung movement which first goes a little up and then a little down. Early music is strongly characterized by movement; aside from the music’s modality, this same movement gives the music its vitality. In its interpretation, TRIGON aims to revive and render this movement by producing a purity of tone that resonates both in body and soul.
