Festival ‘Musica sacra’, 12 and 13/08

Two days of wonderful music, walks, meals and experiences to remember. More than 7 hours of music & 5 meals….

The 12th edition of the Musica Sacra festival, organized by Rosario in Biévène in collaboration with the Centre culturel René Magritte and the Museum Hospital Notre-Dame à la Rose in Lessines, celebrates two mystical figures and music lovers who succeeded each other in the 12th and 13th centuries: Hildegard Von Bingen, a woman and abbess who illuminated the 12th century, and Rumi, the Persian poet who died 750 years ago. Two centuries, two cultures, a woman and a man united in their universal passion which returns to us as a universal echo.

Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August in the Hospital Notre-Dame à la Rose


Short welcoming at 9 am and first concert at 10 am in the Saint-Peterschurch.

Various concerts will take place on Saturday, as well as conferences by Tristan Driessens, Alexandre Traube, and a visit to the Hospital Notre-Dame à la Rose.
The last concert of the day on Saturday starts at 8:30 pm in the church.

Musicians and ensembles: Muso and Yukari Nanami, Flores Harmonici and Illuminans Tenebras

Meals : Two meals, one Japanese-inspired at lunch and Syrian cuisine in the evening, with vegan variations, are planned in situ, in tune with the musical atmosphere.


From dawn, at 7:30 am, the first concert of the day awaits the participants in the Saint-Peterschurch. The bulk of Sunday’s programme will be devoted to a walk (+-12km) with musicians Wouter Vandenabeele, Bao Sissoko and Raphaël De Cock. At each stage, chosen in emblematic places of Lessines and its region: a concert.
In the evening, an exceptional performance of the Kanon Pokajanen by about thirty singers and in a participatory version to which Arvo Pärt himself intended in 2008.
