Leiden English Choir

Welcome

Bloom!

Whatever is going on, the power of nature is everywhere, and this concert focuses on the growth and flourishing of all that is alive. A Renaissance madrigal ‘Revecy venir du printans’ celebrates the arrival of spring; works by Gjeilo, Chilcott, Roth and Lauridsen praise the beauty of the rose and other flowers. ‘Rakastava’ by Sibelius is about love, and there is also cheerful folk music. Mäntyjärvi wrote PseudoYolk, a song that is reminiscent of folk music from Lapland, but it is not… A surprising and varied concert!
