    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).
