The conference featured twenty papers on this long neglected Flemish composer by an international field of scholars, including keynote addresses from Klaus Pietschmann (Universität Mainz) and Fabrice Fitch (Royal Northern College of Music). The conference included sessions on Gaspar in Italy, Gaspar in France and Burgundy, Gaspar’s Missa O Venus bant, Gaspar’s songs, style and transmission, and composition and competition. It ended with a reconstruction workshop for two songs whose bass parts do not survive.
