Commissioned by the City of Ghent and on the occasion of the Van Eyck Year, the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt wrote a new work with the world-famous altarpiece the “Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” as its starting point. Around this world creation, which was given the title “Für Jan van Eyck”, Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent present an exquisite programme of mass movements, motets and organ works by Claudio Monteverdi, Anton Bruckner and Olivier Messiaen.

Repertoire

Arvo Pärt: Annum per annum, Für Jan van Eyck (world première), Claudio Monteverdi: Kyrie, Sanctus-Benedictus, Agnus Dei (Missa a quattro voci da capella); Anton Bruckner: Locus iste, Os justi; Olivier Messiaen: Dieu parmi nous
