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.

“Blue Heron…has created a holiday custom of taking audiences to musical realms far beyond the familiar.” ~ David Weininger, The Boston Globe
