Director Scott Metcalfe loves big, comprehensive projects. He and Boston's much-praised Blue Heron have released five CDs of music from the Peterhouse Partbooks, significant because some of the parts had been missing for years, rendering entire works unperformable. Thanks to careful scholarship, we'll hear pieces in premiere by Hugh Aston and Arthur Chamberlayne alongside music of Fayrfax and Taverner.
Post-concert Q and A
"I cannot recommend this superb CD [Vol. 2 of the Peterhouse series] highly enough—it is the sort of recording to listen to in awe at the sustained and unerring skill of the performers and the burgeoning brilliance of the composers… and to shed a quiet tear for the untold treasures that have been lost."
