RYELANDT, Joseph

Joseph RYELANDT (Bruges, 7th April 1870 - Bruges, 29th June 1965) studied law at the University of Leuven but in 1891 he interrupted his studies to become a private pupil of Edgar Tinel with whom he studied composition. From then on he dedicated himself exclusively to music.

From 1924 to 1945, except 2 years during World War I, he was director of the Municipal Conservatory of Bruges.

As a composer, his strongest period of creativity lasted from 1892 to 1944. His musical production is all embracing and the catalogue of his works is extremely varied. Although he lived most of his productive life in the 20th century, he was a belated romanticist.

Purely symphonic and instrumental music was important to him but he was a more prolific and valuable composer of religious choral works. The great oratorios “Purgatorium”, “De komst des Heren”, “Maria”, “Agnus Dei” and “Christus Rex” brought him international recognition. He wrote also a great number of songs using French, Latin, Spanish and Dutch texts. His Gezelle-Lieder reached an international level.
