Netherlands Chamber Choir
From its formation in 1937 onwards, the renown of the Nederlands Kamerkoor has grown rapidly and the quality of the ensemble has inspired leading composers; including Frank Martin, Francis Poulenc, James MacMillan and Sir John Tavener, to compose works for a cappella chorus. The choir has developed into an all-round ensemble that has mastered all facets of choral music, and is considered to be one of the world’s best. Bernard Winsemius, a connoisseur of church music, organ and carillon, is the ideal organist to play this repertoire. Peter Phillips (Tallis Scholars), Ton Koopman (The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra) and William Christie (Les Arts Florissants) have all earned a reputation as choral conductors and they frequently tour the world with their Renaissance- and Baroque ensembles.
