Music copyist and trader Petrus Alamire (Nuremberg, ca. 1470 - Mechelen, 1536) was a scion of the Bavarian merchant family Imhoff and moved at a young age to the Low Countries, where he stayed at the Burgundian-Habsburg court. He led a workshop for copyists and illuminators. The world and work of Petrus Alamire is the subject of travelling exhibition in Antwerp Cathedral from 21 August to 30 November 2015.
The exhibition won a number of prestigious awards, and included an innovative media installation Speculum Musurgica, allowing visitors to experience polyphony spatially. Central to this entire project were the skilfully executed manuscripts, their function, their meaning and the richness of early sixteenth-century music.
