AMUZ commits itself again this year to the creation of a forum that will enable musicologists and musicians to get together, to combine theory and meet practice, and to exchange ideas. In collaboration with the Alamire Foundation and the Research Unit Musicology of the Catholic University Leuven a conference of several days will be organized with music specialists from various disciplines. They will provide contributions about a central topic that is closely related to the festival theme. In other words: the focus will be on manuscripts here too, and more specifically on those in which music for the prayer times has been preserved. The Low Countries hold an exceptionally rich manuscript collection, originating in the communities and services of a monastic, ecclesiastical and courtly nature. Equally variegated are the contents of those manuscripts which provide the focus for these days of debating, at the same time functioning as a source of inspiration for the noon concert that Capilla Flamenca presents in the framework of this conference on 23 August.
