Oude Muziek Utrecht
The Argonauts, Quest for the Golden Fleece In 1419 Philip the Good inherits a realm stretching from Dijon to deep into the Netherlands. In 1430 he founds his Order of the Golden Fleece, which enables him to give form to and to maintain both his knightly ideals and his political relations. This legendary brotherhood provided Marnix De Cat and his singers with the inspiration for this programme: trumpets announce the arrival of the Duke and his retinue, and love’s praises are sung in refined chansons.

Marnix de Cat, direction

ECOS Festival
A forgotten book – El Manuscrito de Totana The Totana Manuscript was found in 2018 and was presented at the Med&Ren of 2019 by Emilio Ros-Fábregras (CSIC). It has been only performed once at the “”Festival Internacional de Arte Sacro de Madrid”” (October 2020) and contents Spanish Renaissance music in a local manuscript copied (probably) in the XVIII century. It is a prove of the persistence of the Polyphony not he services of the XVII and XVIII centuries.

zamus / KGAM e.V.
Mysteria Paschalia – An Alternative Passion //zamus: early music marathon A dialogue between Passover, the moving main Jewish festival, and the Christian Easter. Both are linked, as, according to the New Testament the death and resurrection of the Christ happened on Passover week. From this calendar closeness, PRISMA develops a concert idea that takes the ensemble from traditional and folk music from Israel to Christian-sacred music, to Egypt and Hungary, and even to Afro-American gospels.
