TREFOIL performs "Dio Mio!"
14th-century Italian Love Songs
Trefoil offers selections from the spectacular trecento style of 14th-century Italy. Music as described in Boccaccio's Decameron: Madrigals, ballate, canons, and estampie by Landini, Cicconia, and Jacopo di Bologna.
TREFOIL is a trio of modern minstrels long active in early music, with experience in such ensembles as Les Arts Florissants, Concert Royal, Early Music New York, Pomerium, Piffaro, Clarion Music Society, and My Lord Chamberlain's Consort. The trio debuted in New York and Philadelphia in 2000 with a program of 14th-century French ars subtilior song. The Philadelphia Inquirer tagged the group "a hearty trio of Medieval music specialists" and their performance as "an intricate, enigmatic vocal art."
