Blue Heron: Ockeghem@600

  • First Church Cambridge 11 Garden Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

Saturday, March 9th, 2019; 8:00PM

Blue Heron continues their Ockeghem series with one of his most celebrated works, the astoundingly complex yet captivatingly beautiful Missa Prolationum, constructed (like Bach’s Goldberg Variations) as a series of canons at different intervals—but Ockeghem’s are double canons, in which four sung parts are generated from two written ones. A truly mind-expanding musical experience!

Scott Metcalfe, Conducting
