    Laus Polyphoniae 2019: Mary of Burgundy (1457-1482) & the Burgundian court
    AMUZ & other historical locations in Antwerp

    The 26th edition of Laus Polyphoniae explores the flourishing cultural scene in the time of Mary of Burgundy, one of the most powerful women in Western Europe in the Late Middle Ages. When the duchess came to power in the Netherlands in 1477, at the age of 20, she did not face an easy task. Her father Charles the Bold had left her with an empty state treasury, hostile neighbouring countries and domestic revolts. Thanks to her diplomatic approach,she succeeded in calming the situation, in Flanders at least. Sadly, Mary’s fate was not a happy one. She died in 1482 after an unfortunate fall from her horse whilst out hunting. She was only 25 years old. Laus Polyphoniae will feature both secular and religious music performed by ensembles from Belgium and abroad: Solazzo Ensemble, Huelgas Ensemble, Tasto Solo, Elizabeth Rumsey & Van Eyck Project, Micrologus, The Binchois Consort, graindelavoix and Gothic Voices. Once again, Antwerp is the meeting place this summer for everyone who loves polyphony!

Three leading ensembles will proclaim the joyful news. To accompany the Missa Aurea Triptych, Prof. M. Jennifer Bloxam (Williams College, USA) will moderate the symposium exploring the impact of the Annunciation story on the sacred arts of the 15th century.
