Singing in Zeerijp

In May 2016, about two thousand visitors came to the cultural festival Terug naar het Begin, in many ancient churches in the northeast of the province of Groningen, the Netherlands.

With over seventy amateur and professional singers, I composed a composition for three concerts in the Jacobus church in Zeerijp. Melodies and texts from ancient Groningen, sounds from amateur amateur singers and solo performers came together in the special acoustics.

The soloists who participated were:
Bianca Holst –
Jonathan Ploeg –
Philip Barkhudarov –
