Holland Baroque and five female soloists present the musical traditions of 17th-century monastic life in North Brabant. In this program, we present a women’s choir singing passion music as it sounded in the 17th-century monasteries. Music written for the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter. Forty days with litanies, Stabat Mater, baroque, Gregorian chant and other works by Benedictus à Sancto Josepho, Herman Hollanders and Carl Rosier.
In the Netherlands in the 17th-century, the Protestants were on the winning end. Public Catholic worship was banned from 1648, which was felt most keenly in Brabant. The Catholics withdrew to barn churches and to Catholic enclaves around Gemert and Boxmeer, tolerated by the Protestants. Benedict Buns, Jan Baptist Verrijt and Carl Rosier wrote their most beautiful works for this hidden life. Discover the music from the ‘Rome of Brabant’.
