Ils Dorment

364 days a year, The Netherlands is a country in motion. But once a year we stop to gather in silence. Vocal Ensemble Irrevocable invites you to commemorate with us on May the 4th, in silence and with music.

Irrevocable plays its own part on Remembrance Day. Our programme takes its name from the commissioned ‘Ils Dorment’ by composer Diederik van der Laag. This piece is inspired by diary fragments from the Second World War. With help from conductor Wouter Verhage, the remainder of the programme was selected based on both beauty and symbolic value. This includes works by Sweelinck, Fauré, Ravel and Glass.
