Ockeghem@600: Ma Maistresse, Masses, and a Motet
Blue Heron presents the sixth program in its series of Johannes Ockeghem’s complete works. The program opens with Au travail suis, a song by the obscure composer Barbingant that nonetheless inspired the three pieces by Ockeghem: his song, Ma maistresse, Missa Au travail suis, and Missa Ma maistresse. The final motet is by an esteemed contemporary, Johannes Regis.
Post-concert Q and A by Scott Metcalfe
“Blue Heron’s Ockeghem project comes with a clear sense of mission: to better acquaint us with a still too little-known composer.… Their carefully thought out performances—precise yet supple, rhythmically alive, and joyful—made for an intensely pleasurable listening experience.”
