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. The ensemble may range in size from three singers (for a fifteenth-century song) to a dozen (for an early sixteenth-century English festal mass) and adds instruments when appropriate. The performers are drawn largely from Boston’s early music community, with other musicians from New York, Washington, New Haven, Montreal, Toronto, Austin, Cleveland, northern California, and Seattle.
