The professional vocal ensemble Blue Heron, under the direction of Scott Metcalfe, is hailed by the New Yorker for the “expressive intensity” of its interpretations, presents a program from Tudor England including a characterful, quirky and entirely anonymous Mass from the Peterhouse Partbooks (c.1540). In addition to the Mass, which was perhaps dedicated to Canterbury’s local hero, St. Augustine, Blue Heron also offers Marian antiphons by Robert Hunt and Hugh Aston.
