Paul Schollaert turned 80 in 2020. He wrote Lied aan de Zee from the Ensorcantata in July 1984 on the occasion of the annual music week in Ronse with the Ostend choirs Muzeschuit (children's choir), Camerata Ostendia (like-minded women's choir) and Ter Duinenkantorij (mixed choir of mainly parents of the children and young people from the two other groups).
The original version of Fruit salad for the choir is in Dutch: discover Fruitsla voor het koor here.
This is perhaps Waelrant's best-known work. It is very popular with choirs in Flanders and the Netherlands.
Vecchie letrose is a villanscha. Willaert wrote fifteen of these kind of songs. Vecchie letrose is still very popular. Since it is very short, it is usually sung several times in succession, sometimes interspersed with instrumental versions. The text is spoken/sung by a lover who makes fun of the envious old women, under whose care the girl in love is placed.
The Missa Nubentium - in nubes progredientium was written for the wedding of his daughter Tineke: Mass for those who marry, advancing in the clouds.
In 2019, Dubois wrote two arrangements for SATB a cappella of Ik zag Cecilia komen, created by the Geels Vocaal Ensemble conducted by Eva Vermeren during their concert trip to Barcelona.

Beata viscera was written in 2005 for the choral scores we published with the magazine Stemband of Koor&Stem. It is an easy and appealing composition in which all voices are assigned an interesting line.
