In 2018 Oud-Rekem celebrated: ‘Ten years the most beautiful village in Flanders’.

For this occasion, Martinus composed a piece of music for the brass band in which he plays the trumpet. The piece is called ‘Oud-Rekem’. He got the inspiration from the d’Aspremont-Lynden castle. This masterpiece was performed by the band St Cecilia of Rekem under the direction of Willy Opsteyn.
