Irrevocable is participating in the Anjeractie!

We have been quiet for a while on our website. COVID-19 restrictions made it impossible for us to sing together, or perform any live concerts. This also impacted our finances…fortunately this time has also seen the start of beautiful initiatives! From the 28th of May until the 5th of June, the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds is holding a mobile collection through the Anjeractie for initiatives concerning culture and nature. Irrevocable is also participating this year! You can support us directly through the following link:  https://cultuurfonds.gift/c/mobiele-collecte-2021?p=44238608.

Of course, we did find ways to sing together this last period, even if we could not do this live. We produced two virtual choir projects, one of which is our interpretation of the ‘Ubi Caritas’ of Ola Gjeilo:

The other project we did was specifically produced for the 4th of May this year. It was a virtual performance of the piece ‘Ils dorment’ of composer Diederik van de Laag. This music is very dear to us, as Diederik wrote it for our ensemble to perform on our Remembrance concert in 2019. Diederik was so enthusiastic about this that he also made a recording for our video!

All of this would not be possible without the help of Imco Daniel of Rayscendo. Thank you for all the editing work, Imco!

Christmas Concert

The season to be jolly has started! Although Irrevocable might have seem quiet these last few months, we have been working on a special Christmas program.

This time we will take you on a musical journey through different times and countries. How did the Christmas story inspire different composers to write music? The red thread throughout the concert will be three different versions of the famous ‘O magnum mysterium’, written by Tomás Luis de Victoria, Francis Poulenc and Morten Lauridsen respectively. We will combine this with famous Christmas classics as ‘God rest you merry Gentlemen’, ‘Il est n’e le divin Enfant’, but also the Catalonian ‘Fum, fum, fum’.

Curious? Come join our merry caroling!  The concert will take place at the 23rd of December in the Jacobs Gasthuis in Schiedam (Burgemeester Knappertlaan 59). The concert will start at 15.00h. Entrance is free.
