Boston Choir Sings Music 

with No Title, No Composer

The final concert of Early Music Now’s 28th season presents a quirky, characterful, and entirely anonymous 16th century composition performed by the 13 voices of Boston’s Blue Heron Choir (blueheronchoir.org). Recently reconstructed as part of an ongoing project exploring neglected early 16th-century English music, this “Missa Sine Nomine” (mass without a name) struck the choir’s director as so fantastic that he decided to include it in this tour in place of the originally scheduled music of Richard Pygott (ca. 1485-1549). This April 18th concert at St. Joseph Center Chapel also includes Sarum plainchant, and music of Robert Hunt (early 16th century) and Hugh Aston (c. 1485-1558). 

Music director Scott Metcalfe is widely recognized as one of North America’s leading specialists in music from the 15th through the 17th centuries and beyond. He is also a baroque violinist, and teaches vocal ensemble repertoire and performance practice at Boston University.

Note that this April 18th concert at the St. Joseph Center Chapel begin at 3:00, with a pre-concert lecture by the director at 2:00. Each half of the program will run approximately 40 minutes, with a 30 minute intermission reception. St. Joseph Center Chapel is located at 1501 South Layton Boulevard (South 27th Street) with parking in the lot behind the chapel at 29th and Orchard.
