Blue Heron Renaissance Choir: Music from the Peterhouse Partbooks
October 16, 2009
Boston’s own Blue Heron Renaissance Choir celebrates its 10th anniversary as the opening performance of the Boston Early Music Festival’s 20th concert season. Since its founding in 1999, Blue Heron has worked to bring the stunning virtuosic music of England’s Peterhouse Partbooks to light through their illuminating performances. These books contain an extensive and mostly neglected repertoire of pre-Reformation English polyphony, much of it of superlative quality. Don’t miss this special program of music by Hugh Aston, Nicholas Ludford, John Mason, and others.
