In 1936 the ‘Kruiskapel‘ was built in the town of Eksaarde (Belgium). It is located on the exact spot where two miraculous crucifixes were found by a certain “Baudouin” in 1317. Suddenly his spade hit a hard object: a cross, and when Baudouin pulled it out of the ground, blood came out. He then found a second cross, two Roman bowls and a spear. As soon as he brought these mysterious objects home, all the bells of the church of Eksaarde started ringing spontaneously. Baudouin informed the priest….

…and what happened next? You can read that further in the composition “A story about the two crucifixes“. You can find this story in the repertoire list 2019 of the publishing house bvt-music. BVT Music GCV was founded in April 2013 by Bert Van Thienen and focuses mainly on sheet music for fanfare band, concert band and brass band.

The publisher presents many talented young composers and arrangers such as Stijn Aertgeerts, Fredrick Schjelderup, Mike Kilmartin, Nick Van Elsen, Patrick Verhaegen, Pimpanit Karoonyavanich.
