Blue Heron, Guillaume de Machaut's Remede de Fortune
TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!
Music at 9th and Stewart is proud to present the world renowned ensemble Blue Heron. The vocal ensemble Blue Heron has been acclaimed by The Boston Globe as one of the Boston music community's indispensables and hailed by Alex Ross in The New Yorker for the expressive intensity of its interpretations. Combining a commitment to vivid live performance with the study of original source materials and historical performance practices, Blue Heron ranges over a wide repertoire, including 15th-century English and Franco-Flemish polyphony, Spanish music between 1500 and 1600, and neglected early 16th-century English music, especially the unique repertory of the Peterhouse partbooks, copied c. 1540 for Canterbury Cathedral. The ensemble also regularly performs earlier and later music, including a concert version of Guillaume de Machauts Remede de Fortune to a collaboration with A Far Cry featuring Gabriel Faurés Requiem and Le Cantiques des Cantiques for twelve voices by Jean-Yves Daniel-Lesur, composed in 1952.
Ticket proceeds from this concert will go to local non-profit organizations working to end food and housing-insecurity. They include Mary's Place, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, The Hope Center, and The Church Council of Greater Seattle.
