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
The ensemble Camerata Trajectina (‘Utrecht Musical Company’), established in 1974, has made its name through its continuing advocacy of Dutch music from the Middle Ages up through the 17th century. The heart of the ensemble consists of Hieke Meppelink (soprano), Nico van der Meel (tenor), Saskia Coolen (recorder), Erik Beijer (viola da gamba) and Louis Peter Grijp (lute and cittern). Sytse Buwalda (alto) and Marcel Moester (bass-baritone) complete the vocal quartet. They are supported by additional musicians when needed, such as on this CD the viola da gamba players Nick Milne en Cassandra Luckhardt.

Artistic leader Louis Peter Grijp has been researching Dutch music for 25 years at the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam, where he set up the enormous Dutch Song Database. In addition he is Professor of Dutch Song Culture at the University of Utrecht. His programs are usually built around literary or political and religious themes and figures from Dutch history. Camerata Trajectina has participated in many national commemorations, from the Union of Utrecht (1979) to John Calvin (2009), and also on the commemoration of the Frisian poet Gyxbert Japix (2003). Another of Camerata’s themes is the connection between music and art, including Jan Steen (1996, Amsterdam Rijksmuseum), Frans Hals (2004, Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem) and Hieronymus Bosch (De Zeven Zonden van Jeroen Bosch or The Seven Sins of Hieronymus Bosch, 2009), with the poet Gerrit Komrij. Camerata Trajectina devotes special attention to Dutch musical theater from the Golden Age, such as the first Dutch opera Bacchus, Ceres & Venus by Johan Schenck (performed at the Utrecht Early Music Festival in 2006), Starter’s sung farce Lijsje Flepkous (2007) and Hacquart’s semi-opera De Triomferende Min (‘The Triumphs of Love’) (2012).

Camerata Trajectina has given hundreds of concerts in the Netherlands (including many in the Utrecht Early Music Festival) and Flanders, in most of the other countries of Europe, in the United States and Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, Indonesia, Ghana, and Morocco. The history of the ensemble has been recorded in the jubilee book Van Peeckelharing tot Pierlala. 40 jaar oude/nieuwe liedekens door Camerata Trajectina by Jolande van der Klis (2014). Meanwhile Camerata has produced over 30 CDs, almost all on the Globe label. These can be ordered via www.cameratatrajectina. nl. Most of these can be listened to via the streaming service of the Dutch Song Database (www. liederenbank.nl).

["].. 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."  
NRC Handelsblad, 31-8-2015
