"The singing is both precise and fluid, immaculate and alive" -- Alex Ross, The New Yorker | Aug. 24, 2015
Jessie Ann Owens and Blue Heron are the 2015 Winners of the Noah Greenberg Award, given once annually by the American Musicological Society “for outstanding performance projects,” to fund a world premiere recording of Cipriano de Rore's “I madrigali a cinque voci” (1542).
"Superb... A listener then would have been lucky to hear these works brought off with such panache. The program is by turns pensive and lively, and the scholarship required to evoke stylistic accuracy is put totally at the service of performance. There's a deeply affecting edge to the singing..." -- David Allen, The New York Times, December 22, 2015
