The Alamire Foundation proudly presents: MISSE JOSQUIN, 12 docu-concerts on the Masses of Josquin des Prez, with brand new performances by top-ensembles and the latest musicological research on each Mass. On March 29 and 30 they will be officially presented in Rome during a congress, concert, and the official handing over of the first copy to Pope Francis. 500 years of Josquin and 30 years of the Alamire Foundation won’t go unnoticed!

Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht 2022

In a promotion video for the Utrecht Early Music Festival 2022, Paul Van Nevel explains the ‘supreme Englishness’ of our concert programme in Utrecht on Sunday 28 August. You can watch the video via this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozf84w7I4Jc

We celebrated the 50th anniversary of the ensemble with a concert in Bozar (Brussels) on 16 October. You can watch the complete concert in the ‘Films’ section of our website.

To celebrate 50 years of Huelgas, Paul Van Nevel has produced a wonderful book of photos that chart the history of the ensemble from 1971 to 2021 (texts in English, Dutch and French). If you would like to order a copy of the book (€20, plus postage and packing), please contact Geert Thyssen (This email address is being protected from spambots.
