About the Musicians

Blue Heron is a highly flexible performing organization which draws from a roster of musicians in order to constitute the ensemble best suited to the repertoire at hand; thus the ensemble may range in size from three singers (for a fifteenth-century chanson) to as many as fifteen (for a large-scale early sixteenth-century English mass as it might have been sung at Canterbury Cathedral) and adds instruments (slide trumpet, trombone, vielle, bajón) when appropriate. The performers are all members of Boston’s large early music community, with local and international professional associations including the Boston Early Music Festival, Sequentia, Las Huelgas Ensemble, Emmanuel Music, the Handel & Haydn Society, the Church of the Advent, the Theater of Voices, the Boston Camerata, the American Bach Soloists, Fortune’s Wheel, Tapestry, and many other ensembles.
