De Rore Website
Wim Daeleman, the author and webmaster of the De Rore Website, graduated as a medical doctor in 1974 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (in Brussels), and was head of the Informatics Department from 1984–2012 in a medical institute. He completed a postgraduate degree in Information and Library Science (with highest distinction) at the UIA in Antwerp in 1994. Daeleman created the De Rore Website because of his admiration for Cipriano De Rore, after discovering that no other website was yet dedicated to this wonderful composer.
From childhood he has been interested in music (mostly classical music) and devoted as much time as he could throughout his life to music (listening, reading, performing). In the last 15 years he has been especially attracted to ancient music (medieval and renaissance), cello music of the 17th and 18th centuries and classic music of the 20th and 21st centuries. He is now in his fourth year of learning the cello at the GAMW (Gemeentelijke Academie voor Muziek en Woord, Mol, Belgium), with Jan Sciffer as his teacher.
