In 1999 the Alamire Foundation organised this exhibition devoted to the unique manuscript corpus of Petrus Alamire, accompanied by an exhibition catalogue in Dutch and a scholarly publication in English (The Treasury of Petrus Alamire). The colloquium The Burgundian-Habsburg Court Complex of Music Manuscripts (1500-1535) and the Workshop of Petrus Alamire further studied the many facets of these manuscripts. The proceedings of this colloquium were published in 2003 as the fifth Yearbook of the Alamire Foundation.
