Cappella Pratensis & Sollazzo Ensemble

The feast of the swan
That Brabanders are true Burgundians, that we already knew. But that 's-Hertogenbosch was once the epicentre of Low Countries music practice as well as gastronomy is less well known. The southern Dutch city with its abundance of churches and monasteries ('little Rome') possessed both a magnificent choir and a delicacy no less magnificent: the swan, the showpiece of the Illustrious Brotherhood of our Blessed Lady's annual banquet. With the Sollazzo Ensemble as its ‘marching band’, Cappella Pratensis invites you to a tasty return trip to the Renaissance.
