Capilla Flamenca [Louvain]

Zodiac - Les très riches heures de Jean de France


The vocal and instrumental ensemble Capilla Flamenca is specialised in polyphonic music from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, and is one of our best ensembles in the field of early music. In 2003 Capilla was awarded the prestigious Premio Internationale Il Filarmonica.

In this programme Capilla Flamenca presents twelve typical works from the Ars Nova repertoire (fourteenth century), as well as several secular works by Guillaume de Machaut, the absolute master of the Ars Nova. In compiling the programme Capilla Flamenca was inspired by the beautifully illustrated zodiac which Jean de Berry commissioned the Limburg brothers to paint.
