Thursday, 7 March, 20:15 hrs. / Behind the clouds the morning dawns - Inter nebulas stella matutina / (ensemble) / Ensemble Colusca: Cora Schmeiser - vocals, Susanne Ansorg - fiddle and Lucia Mense - flutes, presents a program inspired by the legend of Dympna, an Irish princess from the seventh century. In the Officium of St. Dympna van Geel she is sung as the patroness of 'people who lost their heads'. The guiding principle for the concert is Dympna's life story; her strength, her upbringing, her father's abuse, her beheading and finally her martyrdom. It produces a program with unique melodies and lyrics, which can be heard for the first time in 500 years / Waalse Kerk, Haarlem (NL) / For tickets click here.
