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.
“Music to listen to intently—and blissfully.” -The Boston Globe

The General Reserved section for Blue Heron’s performance will be open and available to all General Reserved ticket holders on a first-come first-serve basis. The Discounted Seat section will also be first-come first-serve seating, in a designated section toward the back of the Cathedral.
