Leids Kamerkoor Concerts: "Ave Maris Stella"View all


Description

She is the most portrayed woman in art history. She is the subject of countless choral works. Maria.

There are so many wonderful songs written for her, and about her, that just a small selection of them already makes for a fascinating journey through music history. The Leids Kamerkoor, directed by Jeroen Spitteler, will be happy to take you on such a journey, from the 14th century to 2017.

You will hear works by Clemens Non Papa, El Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, Poulenc, Jansson, Rachmaninov, Grieg, Guerrero,Kverno, Pärt and Tavener.

And we have a surprise in store: Jeroen Spitteler has composed a piece specially for the women of the Leids Kamerkoor: Gerard Manley Hopkins's poem "The May Magnificat" set to music. We are honoured that this piece, which so captures in sound the poem’s richness, has its premier with us. Thus we sing of May – the month of Mary – providing a hint of the coming spring during these dark winter months.

Admission €12,50. Free for children 12 years or younger.
