September 28, 2018 at 22:00 these two outstanding ensembles unite in the world premiere of a new piece composed directly for them: "Meditations over St. Mary Magdalene's feast in Nidaros" borrows material from a 13th century antiphonal manuscript probably both written in and used in Nidaros, the medieval name of Trond-heim. The new piece is a fantasy around antiphons, hymns and psalms, where both ensemble function either as "medieval anchor" or contemporary commentator.
SSS has earlier worked with other parts of the menuscript «Add fol 47», in "Fingergullmess" and in their recordings of the St. Olaf office. Now it is Mary Magdalene's turn!
