Les Beguinages IV – Beghinae by Psallentes

Les Beguinages IV - Psallentes Hendrik Vanden Abeele

“Gravure de P. Wauters (XVIIIe siècle) du ‘Beginasium S. Elisabetea’ à Gand. Petite ville complète, se suffisant à elle-même, possédant une église, une chapelle, une brasserie, une boulangerie dans ses murs, et ses fermes, ses terrains de culture et ses prairies en dehors de son enceinte.”

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. Or check this out.

“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.”

Les Beguinages III – Beghinae by Psallentes

Les Beguinages III - Psallentes Beghinae Hendrik Vanden Abeele

“Eglise de l’ancien grand béguinage de Gand. Les grandes fenêtres des bas-côtés et leur encadrement baroque, le porche, le couronnement des tourelles d’escalier octogonales, de part et d’autre de la façade à triple pignon, les motifs décoratifs de celle-ci datent de la restauration du XVIIe siècle mais ne déparent pas la structure gothique de l’ensemble.”
