Ockeghem@600

Johannes Ockeghem

Renaissance choir Blue Heron returns to Providence with the fourth in their ongoing series running through the complete works of Franco-Flemish composer Johannes Ockeghem. This time the Boston choir is performing Missa ecce ancilla domini, a mass addressed to the Virgin Mary. Ockeghem was kind of a big deal six hundred years ago for musical innovations I only half understand, but Blue Heron call him one of the very greatest composers of the Western tradition. (They’re dedicating seven seasons to this project, which will wrap up in 2021, so it’s probably to be expected that they think he’s great.)
