Blue Heron, directed by Scott Metcalfe, is the 2018 Winner of the Gramophone Classical Music Award for Early Music, the first non-European group to win in the Early Music Category. Alex Ross of The New Yorker has praised its "singing that is both precise and fluid, immaculate and alive". Combining a commitment to vivid live performance with the study of original source materials and historical performance practices, Blue Heron attempts to bring the highest level of expressive intensity and communication to listeners in concert. Founded in 1999, Blue Heron presents a concert series each year in Cambridge, Massachusetts, it has traveled to Canada and England, and toured across the US. Its most recent release is a 5-CD boxed set of music from the Peterhouse partbooks, "The Lost Music of Canterbury". The project has been acclaimed as "one of the most important early choral projects of our time" (Early Music Review (UK)). Sets the standard for the presentation of Renaissance vocal music.
