Biography 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.
