blancquaertL 100x140"Last summer I made a performance with Currende, the choir conducted by Erik Van Nevel, in the context of the commemoration of the Great War, which was so good, what a group of voices can do with feelings and a story is magical."

De Rore Festival Ronse

Cypriaan De Rore

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 6 pm
in the St. Martin's Church in Ronse

"The Rore vs. Lassus - a dissection"

Curator Erik Van Nevel conducts Currende in an exclusive concert, with Bart Jacobs on organ and Ben Van Nespen on harpsichord.
Orlandus Lassus has based many of his compositions on De Rore's work. Lassus especially inspired the madrigals of De Rore. In the concert both composers are placed opposite each other and very precisely with those works that Lassus has used as a model.

All information about the De Rore Festival can be found on ronse.be

Cipriano de Rore: Le Vergine

The poetry of Francesco Petrarca has inspired many artists through the ages. His sonets and stanzes are so musical and speak very intensely to the imagination. His muse Laura, who in a certain sense has always remained an unattainable love and for which he spent almost all his life in literary ecstasy, has been a constant inspiration to him.
