Oltremontano has drawn inspiration from Hans Memling’s monumental triptych, one of the masterpieces at the KMSKA: Christus met zingende en musicerende engelen. The painting shows a throng of angels singing and making music. The instruments they are playing provide an excellent overview of 15th century instrumentation: a psaltery, fiddle, shawm, trompette de menestrels, natural trumpet, lute, harp and tromba marina. But what did they sound like? Now you can hear the music of Memling’s contemporaries on meticulously built copies of the instruments. The female singers of Psallentes play the role of the singing angels.
