Blue Heron’s traversal of the complete works of Johannes Ockeghem continues with a program featuring the Missa sine nomine for five voices. The cycle, a Missa brevis consisting of just three movements, all based on plainchant, is brief indeed, yet (in typical Ockeghemian fashion) packed full of complexity, surprise, and wit. The program also includes a stand-alone, virtuosic Credo sine nomine, the plangent Salve regina, and a several songs by Ockeghem, as well as motets by Heinrich Isaac and Jacob Obrecht and the gorgeous song Quant j’ay au cueur by Antoine Busnoys.

Johannes Ockeghem (c. 1420-1497):
Missa sine nomine a 5
Credo sine nomine a 4
Salve regina
Ung aultre l’a
L’autre d’antan
Ma bouche rit et ma pensee pleure

Heinrich Isaac (c. 1450-1517): O Maria, mater Christi
Jacob Obrecht (1457/8-1505): Ave maris stella
Antoine Busnoys (c. 1430-1492): Quant j’ay au cueur
