All concerts are free and open to the public. No ticket is required. A free-will offering will be taken.
Blue Heron's concert of "Music for Canterbury Cathedral" was
"as thrilling as any Hollywood adventure".

Jones' unforgettable Mass will be offered alongside two others from the Peterhouse partbooks: Nicholas Ludford,'s Ave cujus conceptio, a warm and genial work, filled with cascades of melisma; and Robert Hunt's Stabat Mater, which is quite simply unlike anything you have heard before. The performances this season are the North American premieres of these works. In October, the program was presented in Kansas City, at Yale University's Institute of Sacred Music, at Boston University and at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. Audiences have loved it!
In October, Blue Heron also released the latest CD in its Peterhouse partbooks series, containing world premiere recordings of music of Ludford and John Mason. Tom Moore, in the current issue of Early Music America Magazine, calls it a "world-class" effort. Matthew Guerrieri wrote, in The Boston Globe:
The performances are suffused with elegance and polish ... intense,
expressively heightened dramas that unfold in a kind of
purified, meditative slow motion.
