Scola Gregoriana Brugensis

Songs of happiness and thanksgiving. Songs of mass and craft for the feast of the Asunción de la Virgen María.

The Scola Gregoriana de Brujas comes together with their songs of praise to the 60 years of the Festival with expression of gratitude for their intimate relationship along the years. After the Salve Festa, the initial procession hymn, the principal song of the supposed Hispanic origin, Te Deum laudamus, immerses you then in the paschal songs full of joy that Gregorian singing have left us.

The second part of the program is dedicated to the Asunción de María, key festival of the Catholic religion, and next in time. They sing alternatively the songs of celebration and of adoration indicated for this day: “Kyriale IX (cum jubilo)”. The recital ends with the hymn to María “Magnificat” and the evening prayer.
