Which was the son of..

De cantorij waar Reinier zingt, is al met één van de stukken begonnen die zij met Kerst zullen zingen. Na het requiem dat zij traditiegetrouw op de laatste zondag van het kerkelijk jaar (25 november) zingen, is het namelijk elk jaar best aanpoten om dan nog het Kerst-repertoire goed onder de knie te krijgen.

Het stuk dat zij nu al oppakken in 'Which was the son of..' van Arvo Pärt. We hebben meerdere cd's van deze bijzondere componist in de kast staan en ook dit stuk vind ik weer mooi.



De tekst is de genealogie van Jezus zoals beschreven in Lucas 3 : 23-38
