Les Beguinages II – Beghinae by Psallentes

Les Beguinages II - Psallentes' Beghinae dir. Hendrik Vanden Abeele

“Interieur de l’église Saint-Christophe à Liège. La restauration pas trop destructive lui a pourtant enlevé son caractère fruste et sévère. La dimension des piliers, la porte occidentale en style de transition, les chapiteaux à crochets, les épais meneaux chanfreinés des fenêtres jumelées, le double arc triomphal de la croisée et ses piliers cruciformes sont d’heureux rappels de son aspect primitif.”

Beghinae Psallentes Hendrik Vanden Abeele

Taken from Mademoiselle Van Bever, Beguinages. Bruxelles, Editions du Cercle d’Art, 1943.

Psallentes has made a much acclaimed Beghinae-album. Ask for it in your local CD-store.

“Have you ever seen any beguines? We haven’t either. Those devout laywomen of centuries past are no more. But would you like to hear them sing? That is possible. The Beghinae of Psallentes sing works from manuscripts found in the beguinages of Bruges, Antwerp and Amsterdam, among others. Beguines? They appear before your very eyes.”

You can also find the album on Amazon.
