Two fellow citizens of Bruges - both cultural world stars - reunited
Jacob Obrecht and Hans Memling must certainly have crossed paths on Bruges’s cobblestones. And they both commemorated St. Martin of Tours at around the same time. Memling painted a diptych for Maarten van Nieuwenhove, which can now be seen in Sint-Janshospitaal. Obrecht composed a Mass, which Psallentes are performing and contextualising in Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk. A unique opportunity to discover both masterpieces, because the programme includes a mini-tour of the museum.
