Laus Polyphoniae 2020 "Polyphony connects"

Antwerp put polyphony in the spotlight once again this summer. Laus Polyphoniae, the largest festival in the world focusing exclusively on European polyphonic heritage from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, was turned into a virtual festival, "Polyphony connects", with musical gems from the period between 1250 and 1650, and a bonus excursion to the present day in the form of James MacMillan’s Miserere. Polyphony connects was popular from Europe to the United States and from Asia to New Zealand. People everywhere watched and listened in droves, and the reactions were overwhelmingly positive.
