About the album

Het ensemble Camerata Trajectina weet altijd te verrassen met boeiende inkijkjes in onze minder bekende vaderlandse muziekgeschiedenis. Voor het Utrechtse Oude Muziek Festival van 2015 kwam Camerata Trajectina met een Brits georiënteerd programma. Het ging hier om Britse invloeden op de muziekcultuur van de jonge Republiek der Nederlanden in de 17e eeuw. De melancholische John Dowland behoorde tot de internationale sterren van die tijd. Zijn tophit Flow, Mij Teares is meerdere malen gecoverd door Nederlandse dichters. Veel van die dichters waren predikant. Zij aarzelden niet om aan het oorspronkelijke wereldse liefdeslied een stichtelijke strekking mee te geven. Deze stichtelijke verzen staan in schril contrast met het werk van Jan Janszoon Starter. Deze handige rijmelaar wist de markt van oppervlakkige liefdesliedjes aan te boren met zijn bundel De Friesche Lusthof (1621). Veel van die melodieën uit de Friesche Lusthof zijn vrijwel zeker van Britse bodem, al weten we niet altijd wie de componisten waren. (HJ)
On Dowland in Holland Camerata Trajectina explores the English influence in the Dutch Golden Age (17th century).

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.

Saskia Coolen (viola)

In 2012, recorder player Saskia Coolen discovered by chance, in the Historical Museum in Den Briel, the head joint of an alto recorder, made by the instrument maker Engelbert Terton. She brought in the recorder builder and expert Jan Bouterse who thoroughly cleaned and restored the joint. He suggested that there might well be other playble recorders to be found in private collections. In the years since then, Saskia’s research has turned up six forgotten eighteenth-century recorders: five altos and a sopranino. On this album she plays these rediscovered recorders, together with gambist Rainer Zipperling and harpsichordist Patrick  Ayrton, in eighteenth-century music by De Fesch, Nozeman, Van Wassenaer and other contemporaries. In 2004 Saskia also played on historic recorders, from the  collection...

Nico van der Meel (vocals)

After having been a student in mathematics at the Leiden University, Nico van der Meel decided to become a professional musician. He initially studied choral conducting at the Rotterdam Conservatory, but from 1982 he studied singing with professor Margreet Honig. He concluded his studies cum laude in 1987, after which he took part in masterclasses with Evelyn Lear, Ruud van der Meer, Robert Holl, Elly Ameling and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf amongst others. In the past few years he has been invited as a teacher to several summercourses, like the 'La Caixa' Curso Internacional de Música.

After having been a student in mathematics at the Leiden University, Nico van der Meel decided to become a professional musician. He initially studied choral conducting at the Rotterdam Conservatory, but from 1982 he studied singing with professor Margreet Honig. He concluded his studies cum laude in 1987, after which he took part in masterclasses with Evelyn Lear, Ruud van der Meer, Robert Holl, Elly Ameling and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf amongst others. In the past few years he has been invited as a teacher to several summercourses, like the "La Caixa" Curso Internacional de Música.

Nico van der Meel made an early debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra during the 1987/1988 season and that same season also sang the tenor arias in a recording of Bach's St. John Passion conducted by Sigiswald Kuijken. He performed with conducters such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, John Eliot Gardiner, Gustav Leonhardt, Peter Schreier, Jan Willem de Vriend, Jos van Veldhoven, Helmuth Rilling, Michel Corboz and Sir Colin Davis. Although he became internationally known for his performances of the role of Evangelist in J.S.Bach's Passions, he has a broad concert repertoire, including music from the 16th to the 20th century. In the years 1989 to 1996 he took part in concert tours and recordings of Bach's Mass in B minor and – as Evangelist – in Bach's St.John Passion and St.Matthew Passion by the Orchestra of the 18th Century conducted by Frans Brüggen for Philips Classics. Nico van der Meel can be heard on large number of other albums with early music, as the discograhpy on this website reveals.

In the Netherlands Nico van der Meel was a guest at all major stages for chamber music, but also in Germany, Spain and France he performed in song recitals. For these recitals he works in close connection with pianists Dido Keuning and Leo van Doeselaer amongst others. Albums were published with early songs by Hugo Wolf and with songs by the Dutch composers Johannes Verhulst, Leander Schlegel and Constantijn Huygens.

He has performed a number of operatic roles, including Alfred in Fledermaus by Johann Strauss, Sellem in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, Pedrillo in Mozart's Entführung aus dem Serail conducted by Christopher Hogwood, Don Ottavio in Mozart's Don Giovanni directed by Arnold Östman (recorded by Decca L'Oiseau Lyre) and Camacho in Mendelssohn's Die Hochzeit des Camacho with Anima Eterna led by Jos van Immerseel (recorded by Channel Classics).

Nico van der Meel is a member of the ensemble Camerata Trajectina which is recognized as a major advocate for Dutch music of the 16th and 17th century. With this ensemble he made more than fifteen albums. Nico van der Meel is also the leader of the William Byrd Vocal Emsemble, a choir that is mainly occupied with a capella music from the middle ages until the 21th century. Furthermore he coaches ensembles and led projects with various groups.

5***** ["].. An excellent and informative publication with unique material and a well documented CD booklet."
Opera Nederland, 30-12-2015

["].. His songs are usually quite heavy-handed, but here it appears that the melodies really lend themselves to all kinds of texts: of loves complaints to naughty songs. Camerata Trajectina obviously this to a wonderful varied album. A CD to play frequently."
Tijdschrift voor Oude Muziek, 01-12-2015

["]..Camerata Trajectina presents a program of Dutch songs on music of English composers..... In the bolder texts  a bit more unnuendo could have been more in place, furthermore the performance of the one-to four-part songs and the instrumental contributions are all exemplary."
Klassieke Zaken, 01-12-2015

''Due to Starter the cd contains, next to devotional laments more optimistic parts: tenor Nico van der Meel is in great shape in Starters 'Boertigheden', a collection of obscene songs'' 
Luister, 02-11-2015

["]..The sound is recognizable as always, with affected vocals and a sound dominated by the recorder."
De Telegraaf, 05-9-2015

[''].. As usual with Trajectina the result is an enthousiastic, excellently made cd that you want to give as a gift because of the mix of familiarity and alienation."
