Join the Blue Heron Medieval Ensemble at First Parish this Friday night as they present the fifth installment of the complete works of Johannes Ockeghem, featuring one of the composer’s earliest masses, inspired by an anonymous English mass on the same plainchant melody, but utterly transformed by the Flemish genius. The program will include a movement from the English Missa Caput and other music by mid 15th-century English composers such as Robert Morton and Walter Frye.
Blue Heron: Martin Near & Laura Pudwell, cantus; Owen McIntosh, Jason McStoots, Mark Sprinkle, Sumner Thompson, tenor & contratenor; Paul Guttry & David McFerrin, bassus.
