"Amici Cipriani De Rore" was enthousiastically founded by a group of volunteers who have a passion for De Rore's music. The "Amici" wants to be a platform for everybody who's interested in the composer Cypriaan De Rore and his music.

There are no obligations entailed to the membership of "Amici". To be a member, means to support the idea that De Rore has contributed to polyphonic music in such an extraordinary way that it should not be forgotten.

The idea first came about in the Werkgroep De Rore in Ronse, the composers birthplace. It is not our aim to be just a regional organisation, rather to give the "Amici Cipriani De Rore" an international working ground.

One of our main objectives is to bring alive De Rore's music in historical appropriate conditions and with the best of knowledge. So it is also necessary to attract educated people like musicians, who put high interest in the correct execution of De Rore's music and who are not discouraged by the necessary search for documentation. We also want to attain musicologists, who can help in this search and contribute to a historic inspired performance.

To engage these knowledged people is very important for our foundation.

At last, we should not forget that De Rore was not the only polyphonic composer, but others proceeded (Josquin Desprez) or followed (Monteverdi) him. We want to honour their musical inheritance as well.
