“…refreshing concert, enthusiastically received, of music that embodied Christmas spirit.” -The Seattle Times
Blue Heron, the Boston-based a cappella ensemble, has been hailed by the New Yorker as the American heir apparent to the Tallis Scholars. The ensemble of ten singers and early harp makes its Seattle debut in the rich acoustics of St. James Cathedral with Advent and Christmas in Medieval England, a festive program of carols, motets and plainchant from 15th-century England, featuring music by Leonel Power, John Dunstaple, English carols, and Sarum plainchant.
