Masterpiece: Lassus

How do we deal with confession and penance today? With the Penitential Psalms of Lassus as a guide, documentary filmmaker Griet Teck and Musica initiated conversation with four women from the Penitentiary Complex in Bruges. Within the walls and strict regulations of the prison, a different world exists. The women themselves can not be portrayed, but with music as a medium and the texts of the Old Testament as a source of inspiration,Griet Teck sketches an intimate portrait of four women and their personal experience of penance and guilt. 

The documentary (in Dutch) will be shown at the Concertgebouw Circuit during the Lassus week, as well as after the concert of the Vocalconsort Berlin on 25 May.
