Anna Maria Friman and Torunn
Ostrem Ossum in

Norwegian folk songs for the group to perform, and they have been known to
perform selected works by contemporary composers. They have released a handful of
albums over the years, including Folk
Songs, Soir, Dit
Elle: Words of the Angel,
and Stella Maris.
Linn has also
appeared with a variety of artists on albums such as Crux, Diminuito
and From the Sweet-Scented Streams of
Eternity. Aside from her
recordings and performances with Trio Mediaeval, Linn has soloed with The
Norwegian Baroque Orchestra, The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir, and The
Stavanger Symphony Orchestra.
She is also passing her rich musical knowledge onto a new generation
of singers, as she is the artistic director and conductor of the Boltelokka Children’s Choir in Oslo, Norway.
