The performers of Blue Heron are all members of Boston’s large early music community, with local and international professional associations including the Boston Early Music Festival, Sequentia, Las Huelgas Ensemble, Emmanuel Music, the Handel & Haydn Society, the Church of the Advent, the Theater of Voices, the Boston Camerata, the American Bach Soloists, Fortune’s Wheel, Tapestry, and many other ensembles. For its first visit to Cleveland, Blue Heron will perform music from the Peterhouse partbooks, which were copied in 1541 for Canterbury Cathedral. Blue Heron has specialized in music from the Peterhouse partbooks since its founding in 1999.
