Vrijdag/Friday 18 mei/may 2012 Watou, Sint-Bavokerk, 17h
Psallentes will be performing from the Codex Calixtinus at the famous Festival of Gregorian Chant in Watou, Belgium.
Chant group Psallentes consists of six professional singers, presenting a vivid performance of fifteenth century chant. Here you can listen to (the first half of) the responsory ‘O beata Trinitas’ while watching the same in the original manuscript (B-Gu 15/1: an antiphoner from the Abbey of Bavo in Ghent, 1481). This is from the cd ‘Etienne de Liège – In festo sanctissimae Trinitatis’ RIC 249. Buy the cd at http://www.ricercar.be – other discs available as well. Check it out!
