Friends of Cappella Pratensis Foundation, established in 2004, unites early music lovers who care about the ensemble and the early music it performs. Since its foundation, much has happened. Cappella’s national and international fame has increased enormously, and from 2020 the start of the project “De Bossche Koorboeken” (Den Bosch Choirbooks) will give rise to even more fame.
If you have become enthusiastic after a Cappella Pratensis concert and intend to come and listen more often to a concert of this ensemble, with its characteristic arrangement around one large music stand, please register as a Friend.
If you are a lover of the music of Josquin des Prez (Pratensis) and his contemporaries and of the multicolored cultural life of the Low Countries, we welcome you as a Friend of Cappella Pratensis.
From € 35,- you can become a friend. By becoming a Friend, you contribute to the preservation of this beautiful polyphonic music from the 15th and 16th centuries, which belongs to the most beautiful heritage of Brabant and the Low Countries. You will also be kept informed of the progress of the project “De Bossche Koorboeken”, which was started in 2020. This project involves the digitization and presentation of manuscripts of the masses and motets composed on behalf of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap, (Illustrous Sweet Lady’s Brotherhood) which are bound in the choirbooks on display in the Zwanenbroedershuis in Den Bosch. The Friends Foundation is supporting this wonderful project. For five years, the ensemble will present the results of their study to the public through concerts, recitals and videos. This process can also be followed in the videos on the website.
The Friends of Cappella Pratensis Foundation thus contribute to the preservation of this rich cultural heritage of Brabant. By applying as a Friend, you support this!
