The Huelgas Ensemble organizes three weekends in which unknown repertoire is rehearsed under the direction of Paul Van Nevel.  The target group is professional, semi-professional and amateur singers, who have some experience of singing polyphony and who can read well. The main objective is to study a polyphonic composition, an exciting exploration into previously unknown territory!

A new book by Paul Van Nevel:
Het landschap van de polyfonisten - The world of the Franco-Flemish School (1400-1600)

Why did the polyphonists all come from the same region of southwest Belgium and northern France? And and what was the influence of this region on their music? A unique analysis of the environment - the ‘cultural landscape’ - of the 15th and 16th-century musician. The book includes a CD and no fewer than 168 beautiful photographs.
