Summerschool 2020

Rhythms of Life: the 's-Hertogenbosch Choirbooks

The corona crisis has changed all our lives over the past months. Unfortunately this includes the cancellation of many live events, amongst which our annual polyphony Summerschool. But all is not lost! Musica, Impulse Centre for Music is teaming up with AMUZ, Festival of Flanders - Antwerp and Cappella Pratensis to bring you an online version of the course this year. Taking place in the same week as originally planned, the Summerschool will still focus on the “Rhythms of Life” at the Confraternity of Our Illustrious Lady in the Dutch city of ’s-Hertogenbosch. We’ll work on the Missa Cum jocunditate (Credo) and look at other pieces from the rich collection of choirbooks still held by the Confraternity. As ever, we’ll sing “straight from the source”, working exclusively from facsimiles of the choirbooks.
