The Program

Psalms of mourning need no translation, whether composed during the Dutch Renaissance, Mendelssohn’s Germany, or 20th-century America. The Netherlands Chamber Choir gives voice to human suffering through multilingual expressions of lamentation and the balm of miraculous music.

“I am as forgotten as the dead
As unremembered as a broken pot”
– from Psalm 31 (translation by Norman Fischer)
