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.
