Meer Stemmig Gent is a festival held in and around the Church of Saint Macarius and Saint Bavo’s Abbey in Ghent. The festival comprises an opening concert and a day filled with various activities. The aim of the festival is to shine a spotlight on the unique, rich cultural heritage of Flemish and other polyphony of the renaissance era.

During the opening concert on Friday, the English ensemble The Tallis Scholars and conductor Peter Phillips will perform a selection of the very best music from the golden sixteenth century, including works by Thomas Tallis and William Byrd.

Top-class musicians from the Flemish and international early music scene will be performing on Saturday.
