Anonymous, Missa sine nomine

Described by the New York Times as ‘the outstanding early-music ensemble’, Blue Heron explores vocal music of the Renaissance and Medieval periods. Based in Boston, and led by Scott Metcalfe, Blue Heron offers a home subscription series in Harvard Square and is now firmly established as the finest choral ensemble of its type in North America. Their concert for Camerata Musica Cambridge draws on repertoire from the ‘Peterhouse Part Books’, Peterhouse’s collection of Tudor church music manuscripts, and offers one of its greatest masterpieces: the anonymous Mass, dating from the last years of Henry VIII’s reign, known as the Missa sine nomine –  a work that is the equal, in both beauty and sophistication, of anything by Byrd or Tallis.
