AB40 CHURCH CONCERT: Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares - A Christmas Mystery

Facebook event Share Tweet

Unique vocal brilliance - loved by Kate Bush & Gorillaz – at a unique location

Please note: this concert takes place in the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula (Wilde Woudstraat 15, 1000 Brussels), a 5 minute walk from Central Station.

‘I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. I listened to Le Mystère all the time.’
(Kate Bush)

‘I saw them live and I just thought: that’s IT. That’s the top. You can’t go further.'
(Lisa Gerrard - Dead Can Dance)

Isn’t it strange how an ensemble that was established in 1952 (!), and had an incredible popularity in the second half of the ‘80s, suddenly turns up everywhere again. The angelic voices of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares have appeared at the renowned Primavera festival in Barcelona and also at AB. Lady Gaga recently used their music in her documentary ‘Five Foot Two’ and Le Mystère was also flaunted on ‘kick-ass women’,  a recent Gorillaz mixtape. Drake and Leftfield sampled their music and Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance) helped out on their latest album ‘BooCheeMish’.
 

AB is proud to be able to present this unique 22-member female choir at a unique location: the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula. On the programme: A Christmas Mystery, with a setlist containing traditional Bulgarian Christmas songs as well as traditional Christmas carols. As icing on the cake, the choir will also perform songs from their latest album.

Très beau concert. Dommage qu'il n'était pas possible de voir les chanteuses. Une estrade aurait bien été utile, vu la longueur de la nef.

Mooie stemmen maar zwakke akoestiek waardoor enkel de eerste vijf rijen konden genieten. Wat een verschil met de Begijnhofkerk die pakken beter scoort. Waarom werd niet gekozen voor geluidsversterking ? Scala beheerst deze techniek tot in de puntjes. Een gemiste kans (zeker met dat prijskaartje).
