David McFerrin, who we last featured singing in Philip Glass' The Penal Colony with Boston Lyric Opera, is going back a few centuries to perform "Christmas in Medieval England" with the Blue Heron music ensemble. They opened last night in Cambridge, Massachusetts and will perform two more show there today and an additional show in Providence on Sunday, December 20. Tickets are available online.

David McFerrin and Blue Heron perform Leonel Power's Gloria OH 21:

Blue Heron has been performing vocal music of the Renaissance and medieval periods for over 15 years and McFerrin has performed and traveled with the ensemble. The current concert includes music for Advent and Christmas from 15th-century England, including motets by Leonel Power and John Dunstaple, English carols, and Sarum plainchant.

Eric Westerfelt of public radio's Here & Now show recently interviewed McFerrin and Scott Metcalfe, the music director of Blue Heron, which you can listen to below.

In March 2016, McFerrin will return to the Boston Lyric Opera to perform in Massenet's Werther and then the following month in Lehàr's The Merry Widow with fellow barihunk Jesse Blumberg. He'll also be performing a concert of Broadway hits with the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota.
