Blue Heron — Riches d’amour: French & Italian poetry & music from the 14th through 16th centuries


Blue Heron is engaged in the exploration of Renaissance and medieval vocal music, putting the study of original sources in the service of vivid live performance. Blue Heron’s expansive repertoire includes 15th-century English and Franco-Flemish polyphony, Spanish music between 1500 and 1600, and neglected early 16th-century English music. The ensemble presents a lecture about and performance of polyphonic song from the 14th through 16th centuries, including French chansons and Italian madrigals setting texts by Petrarch, as part of the International House’s Global Voices Performing Arts & Lecture Series. A reception with the artists follows the event.

Free admission. No tickets are required. 

Persons with disabilities who may need assistance should contact International House in advance of the program at 773-753-2774 or i-house-programs@uchicago.edu.
