Across the Pond: 500 Years of British Choral Music

On Friday, February 23, 2024, the Nijmegen Student Choir Alphons Diepenbrock (NSKAD) will present its winter concert ‘Across the Pond: 500 Years of British Choral Music.’ in the Groenestraatkerk (Groenestraat 229).

This year, the NSKAD will perform pieces by various British composers from different periods and styles. The repertoire is highly diverse. Pieces from Baroque, Romantic, and everything in between will be featured. This special repertoire will be a journey from the melancholic ‘Funeral Sentences’ by Henry Purcell (1659-1695) to the bombastic ‘Evening Hymn’ by Henry Balfour Gardiner (1877-1950) and many more extraordinary choral pieces by composers such as John Blow, William Byrd, Herbert Howells & Gustav Holst.

The British repertoire will be performed both a cappella and accompanied by the organ. The choir will be assisted by organist Jan Pieter Lanooy for these pieces. Additionally, resident conductor Leenke de Lege will once again lead the choir.
