BLUE HERON SEASON OPENS WITH PREMIERES (NEW YORK CITY)
Date: October 3, 2012
Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Nicholas Ludford: Missa Inclina cor meum
John Mason: Ave fuit prima salus
The mesmerizing Mass "Inclina cor meum" by Ludford and the astonishing 20-minute antiphon 'Ave fuit prima salus' by Mason form the entirety of our Opening Concert this season. Ludford and Mason were leading composers in the golden age of English Cathedral music (c.1540), but their music has largely gone unheard for centuries. These works will also appear on the third CD in Blue Heron's 5-CD series bringing to a wider audience the best music from the Peterhouse Partbooks. Look for the release of Volume 3 in 2013.
