    A Mass for St. Augustine of Canterbury: Missa sine nomine

    Blue Heron, "one of the Boston music community's indispensables" (Boston Globe), offers another gem from the Peterhouse Partbooks (copied c.1540). This characterful, quirky, and entirely anonymous (and nameless) work was perhaps dedicated to Canterbury's local hero, St. Augustine. Blue Heron's Music Director is Scott Metcalfe.

    Blue Heron has been engaged with the Peterhouse Partbooks since its founding in 1999, and has released three CD's of the best music found in them, and plans to release two more. The critics have raved about the recordings. "Expressive intensity ... even a hint of baroque flair" (Alex Ross, The New Yorker)

    "An exciting series... top marks in all respects" (Barry Brenesal, Fanfare).
