Welcome on the site of the International Gregorian Festival of Watou (Belgium)

Following previous successful collaborations with Mr Ignace Thevelein (diocesan manager for church music of the diocese of Bruges) - the idea arose to organise two joint concerts during Easter time with "COLLEGIUM DE DUNIS" and "CUM JUBILO", and with saxophone and serpent improvisations. One concert will take place in Bruges, and one in Watou.
During this concert, COLLEGIUM DE DUNIS will perform a selection of polyphonic chants for Easter from the Renaissance period and from the contemporary repertoire, which will be alternated with Gregorian chants brought by CUM JUBILO. These Gregorian chants will be performed in an original Gregorian version and afterwards in a reworked version by composers from the Renaissance period.

  • Saturday 27 April 2024 in Bruges
  • Sunday 28 April 2024 in Watou.
