Blue Heron's concert of Music for Canterbury Cathedral was
"as thrilling as any Hollywood adventure."
KC Metropolis | October 2013
Jones' unforgettable Mass will be offered alongside another from the Peterhouse partbooks, Robert Hunt's Stabat Mater, a work that is quite simply unlike anything you have heard before. The performances this season are the North American premieres of these works. In October, the program was presented in Kansas City, at Yale University's Institute of Sacred Music, at Boston University and at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. Audiences have loved it!
In October, Blue Heron also released the latest CD in its Peterhouse partbooks series, containing world premiere recordings of music of Ludford and John Mason. Tom Moore, in the current issue of the magazine Early Music America, calls it a "world-class" effort. Matthew Guerrieri wrote, in The Boston Globe:
The performances are suffused with elegance and polish ... intense,
expressively heightened dramas that unfold in a kind of
purified, meditative slow motion.
