Alamire Foundation | Artistic residency
Concert Philippus de Monte in Praag (21st November in Abdijkerk van Park) is organised in the frame of artistic recidency in Alamire Foundation (16th – 20th November 2021).
The atmospheric church of Park abbey will be the setting of DeVespers, a series of concerts on Sunday afternoon with age-old music written for the evening prayer service. Cappella Mariana explores the vesper motet repertoire of Philippe de Monte and his contemporaries from Prague.
The Alamire Foundation celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021. As centre of excellence at KU Leuven and creative ambassador of the City of Leuven, the Foundation has invested in research and valorisation of Gregorian chant and polyphony from the Low Countries since 1991. For this residency, Cappella Mariana is supported by the i-Portunusscheme by the European Commission.
