The opening of the exhibition and the start of the Laus Polyphoniae Festival will be attended by musicologists, performers of polyphony and managers of early music festivals from all over the world. They will converge on Antwerp for a five-day international conference to engage in a dialogue on the latest musicological theories about the Alamire manuscripts, their history, significance, repertoire, etc. as well as discussing performance practice of late medieval polyphony. Never before did musicologists, artistic directors of early music ensembles and concert organizers get together for such a professional conference.
