About the album

When people are affected by a disaster, they often seek comfort. There is a long tradition of disaster songs: by singing together people sought support from each other.

Lotte Jensen (Professor of Dutch Cultural and Literary History at Radboud University in Nijmegen) investigates the emotional impact of disasters and the creation of a national identity in the Netherlands and came across songs about fires, floods, drought and insect plagues. Camerata Trajectina brings this tradition of the Dutch disaster song to life.

About the plague and corona, about the St. Elizabeth’s Flood in 1421 and the Flood of 1953: singing about disasters is timeless. Camerata Trajectina has made a fascinating overview, from devotional lyrics to psalm melodies but also cabaret-like songs from the 1920s. An expressive melodrama by Hendrik Badings and mesmerizing chorales from the Evangelische Liedbundel from 1806.

The functions of these lyrics are diverse; to evoke awareness of sin or as a news outlet, for youth education or for fundraising. This album shows how people in the Netherlands dealt with major disasters and what a comforting and connecting role music played in this.

Wenn Menschen von einer Katastrophe betroffen sind, suchen sie oft Trost. Es gibt eine lange Tradition von Katastrophenliedern: Durch gemeinsames Singen suchten die Menschen Halt bei einander.

Lotte Jensen (Professorin für niederländische Kultur- und Literaturgeschichte an der Radboud Universität in Nijmegen) erforscht die emotionalen Auswirkungen von Katastrophen und die Entstehung einer nationalen Identität in den Niederlanden und stieß dabei auf Lieder über Brände, Überschwemmungen, Dürre und Insektenplagen. Die Camerata Trajectina erweckt diese Tradition des niederländischen Katastrophenliedes zum Leben.

Von Pest und Corona, von der Elisabethflut 1421 und der Sintflut von 1953: Das Singen über Katastrophen ist zeitlos. Die Camerata Trajectina hat einen faszinierenden Überblick geschaffen, von Andachtstexten über Psalm-Melodien bis hin zu kabarettistischen Liedern aus den 1920er Jahren. Ein ausdrucksstarkes Melodram von Hendrik Badings und hypnotisierende Choräle aus dem Evangelischen Liedbundel von 1806.

Die Funktionen dieser Texte sind vielfältig: zur Bewusstmachung von Sünde oder als Nachrichtenmeldung, zur Jugenderziehung oder zum Spendensammeln. Dieses Album zeigt, wie die Menschen in den Niederlanden mit großen Katastrophen umgingen und welche tröstende und verbindende Rolle die Musik dabei spielte.

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.

8/10 Anyone looking for authentic Dutch misery will find joy at Camerata Trajectina
Luister, 15-10-2021

Camerata Trajectina takes us through centuries of national misery. The album is, as always, beautifully designed, with all the old Dutch lyrics sung in the booklet.
Het Parool, 20-1-2022

Thanks to an ingenious coordination of polyphonic and monophonic settings, the music remains captivating from start to finish.
Nieuwe Muze, 01-12-2021

To start with: what a beautiful digipack! Musically it's all fine and then the chosen subject is also delicious
