Me and my wife

Me and my wife (2012/2016) for five and six part unaccompanied chorus.

Mijn vrouw en ik

Commissioned by the Fonds Podiumkunsten for the Utrechtse Studenten Cantorij, conducted by Fokko Oldenhuis. World premiere April 20, 2013 in the Nicolaï Church in Utrecht within the frame of the Peace of Utrecht.

Me and my wife was originally written for accordion, harp, percussion and mixed choir and consists of three songs. The texts are reviews about hotels and restaurants, found on the internet and are only in Dutch (see Dutch page).

The occassional combination of chorus with accordeon, harp and percussion has the disadvantage that the number of performances will be limited. The transcription for five to six part unaccompanied chorus was possible because of the strong independent role of the choir.
