About the album

De productie van "Maassluis Hoekertje" is de nieuwste cd van Camera Trajectina met daarop liedjes uit Maassluise liedboekjes.
Ook voor Maassluis was de zeventiende eeuw een Gouden Eeuw, mede door de welvarende visserij. De bevolking was hier trots op en dat spreekt uit de lokale liedboekjes die in Maassluis verschenen, zoals ‘t Nieuw Maas-Sluysche Hoekertje, ‘t Maes-sluysche Compas en Maes-sluysse Meeuwe-klagt alleen de titels al verwijzen naar de visserij. Lokale liedboekjes waren een modeverschijnsel in zeventiende-eeuwse Hollandse steden. Nadat de meeste Hollandse steden van dergelijke lokale liedboekjes waren voorzien, was Maassluis een van de eerste dorpen die er eentje kreeg: het genoemde Maas-Sluysche Hoekertje van C.L. Denik, waarvan de eerste druk rond 1660 moet zijn uitgekomen. De Maassluise liedboeken waren wel een stuk serieuzer dan de lokale wereldlijke zangbundeltjes elders. Bevatten die na een enkel plichtmatig loflied op de lokale schonen vooral amoureuse en vrolijke liedjes van allerlei aard, in Maassluis waren hoofdthema’s zijn visserij en godsdienst.

Sinds 1974 specialiseerde Camerata Trajectina zich in muziek uit de vaderlandse geschiedenis, met projecten rond Willem van Oranje, P. C. Hooft, Jacob Cats, Johannes Calvijn, Jan Steen, Frans Hals, de VOC en nog veel meer.

Camerata Trajectina

It is impossible to imagine Dutch musical life without Camerata Trajectina. The early music ensemble has made a name for itself by pleading for Dutch music from the 16th en 17th century, in particular songs, and aims to bring this music back to life, in a playful and scientifically justified way. Camerata Trajectina comprises a nucleus of musicians, to which musicians and ensembles can be added. The group’s programmes deal chiefly with social events, such as exhibitions and commemorations of events and individuals from Dutch history. The group took part in almost all editions of the Utrecht Early Music Festival, gave hundreds of concerts in the Nederlands and Flanders and toured to amongst others the United States, Canada, Ghana and Indonesia.

Jacob van Eyck

Jacob van Eyck, also known as 'the Orpheus of Utrecht', was one of the most important Dutch musicians of the 17th century. As an expert in bell casting and tuning he was of crucial importance to the development of the carillon. He was born blind, but had an extraordinary acute sense of hearing, which enabled him to trace the composition of the overtone structure of bells and to discover the way in which they are tuned. His collaboration with the bell founders Hemony resulted in the first well-tuned carillons. In 1623 Van Eyck settled in Utrecht, where he became carillon player of the Dom Tower two years later. In 1628 he was appointed as ‘Director of the Carillons of Utrecht’, and became...

In 1623 Van Eyck settled in Utrecht, where he became carillon player of the Dom Tower two years later. In 1628 he was appointed as ‘Director of the Carillons of Utrecht’, and became responsible for all of the carillons in the city. As a result of his efforts, Hemony-carillons were made for two of the churches in Utrecht.
Today Van Eyck is primarily known as a recorder virtuoso. In the evenings he played his variations on popular melodies at the Janskerkhof. These variations are notated in the collection Der Fluyten Lust-hof, which contains around 150 compositions.
