The Trinity Carol Roll
(DS, 4 or more singers, gothic harp, lute & vielle)
The Trinity Carol Roll (from Trinity College, Cambridge) is the earliest source of the English polyphonic carol. The 13 works in this manuscript include the famous ‘Agincourt’ carol, celebrating Henry V’s victory, and much-loved and performed ‘There is no rose’. The performances offer a fresh take on medieval instrumentation. Alamire recorded the entire roll in the Wren Library at Trinity College in September 2011.
