Blue Heron’s debut CD offers an entrancing selection of music by the greatest composer of the 15th century, Guillaume Du Fay (c.13971474).

The programme includes three isorhythmic motets (A postolo glorioso, Rite majorem Jacobum canamus and Ecclesie militantis), the glorious, large scale Sanctus 'Papale' in its first recording in three decades, two hymns with alternatim plainchant verses, and a generous sampling of secular songs.

Works by Johannes Ockeghem and Hugo de Lantins are also included.
