‘Even stil’ – a moment of pause

For 364 days a year, the Netherlands is in movement, but óne day a year we come together for a moment of pause. Vocal Ensemble Irrevocable invites you to join us on the 4th of May for a moment of pause and to join us in remembrance: two minutes in silence, followed with music. With pieces on peace and loss we do not only remember the Dutch victims of violence, but all victims of violence, in war and peace.

The music will commence after the traditional two minutes of silence, and has been selected for their beauty and symbolic value in cooperation with Wouter Verhage. They include the Missa Papae Marcelli by Palestrina, the Da Pacem by Pärt, Sleep by Whitacre and the gripping Wie liegt die stadt so wüst by Mauersberger.
