Description:
Program note (English): Well into the18th century a leper victim, before being definitively banished to a leper home far from the city environs, was proclaimed 'officially dead' by the healthy fellow-citizens. To this end one dedicated, in presence of such a victim, a requiem mass and forced that person to undergo a number of fairly sinister rituals. In book dating from 1763 in Antwerp, the Antiquis Ecclesiae Ritibus, part 3, written by father Edmund Marten, explains how these ceremonial banning in several Northern French cities occurred. Departure point for Requiem voor een levende (Requiem for the living) is that ceremony which was so popular in and around Bourges. - JACQUES BANK
