The music of a mythical church rings through to the present

St. Donatian has protected Bruges for centuries, even after his church on the Burg was sold and demolished in around 1800. All that now remains of that legendary building are a few sections of foundation and some contours. This festival Saturday, however, this church – and later cathedral - is brought right back to life. Following on from Frederik Neyrinck’s large-scale project, Paul Van Nevel combines a glittering Donatian Mass by Jacob Clement (a.k.a. Clemens non Papa) ' with two sumptuous, large-scale Bruges motets.
