Sicut lilium (Tinel, Jef)

Hello Peter. The librettist for this work is Hubert Boyle (real name: Gery Helderenberg), who died only in 1979, so we need the permission of his estate to publish his text on IMSLP. Do you know if this has been obtained? I've blocked any downloads in the meantime until this can be cleared up. Thanks — P.davydov 22:51, 27 January 2012 (UTC)


I searched if there is still family of this poet. I didn't find anyone. He was a priest and he didn't have children... He died in a monastery and the sisters of that house do not know any family of him. I asked by SABAM (Belgian organization for the rights of authors) and neither they know anything about Helderenberg. So I don't know who to ask the permission. So I suppose the song 'Sicut lilium' can be published without problems.

Mail by the sisters where Helderenberg died: Geachte Heer,

Priester Hubert Buyle (Gery Helderenberg) verbleef inderdaad bij ons tot zijn overlijden. Ik kan u echter niet zeggen wie er recht zou hebben op de auteursrechten. Wij in geen geval. Familie had hij naar mijn mening niet meer, tenzij heel ver. Wie er momenteel recht heeft op de auteursrechten heb ik geen idee van. Mischien moet U de vraag wel stellen aan Sabam. Spijtig, ik kan u helaas niet beter helpen.

Hartelijke groeten.
