Cornegidouille is a Belgian mixed choir whose vocation is to interpret secular and sacred polyphonic choral music, mainly from the Renaissance.

The group pays a particular attention to place its repertoire its historical context. Its performances in period dress are structured in thematical sets which illustrate selected topics (like sacred works, love songs, marital life, drinking songs, etc.)

Musée du CinquantenaireFounded in Belgium in 1996 by Alain Rondenbosch, the group includes about thirty people of all ages and of various backgrounds who meet on a regular basis in order to share their common passion.

Cornegidouille takes advantage of the extraordinary universal nature of the Renaissance musicians. Cornegidouille enjoys their spontaneity, sensitivity, precision of written word as well as their poetic - sometimes bawdy - expression which never falls in obscenity. The polyphonic writing, perfectly balanced between technique and music induces a subtle pleasure for the interpreters as well as for the listeners.

Conert à Villemur (Toulouse)The repertoire includes pieces from great composers like Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Clément Janequin, Orlando di Lasso, Josquin des Prez, Juan del Encina, William Byrd, Thomas Morley and Tomás Luis de Victoria. All are interpreted in their native language from Latin to in French, Dutch, German, English, Italian and Spanish.

Cornegidouille is member of the "A Cœur Joie" association.

Cornegidouille released its first CD at the 1583 Renaissance Festival of the city of Lessines in Belgium.

The group regularly performs live in Belgium and abroad and is glad to enliven all types of festivals and shows, alone or together with specialized vocal, instrumental and dance groups.
