Music

Our policy is to compose repertory with the help of the conductor and music working group. We are constantly looking for original scores, challenging the skills of our choir. Our library includes as wel as universal as religious music from various periods such as barbershopsongs, evergreens, drink- and folk music. Compositions of nowadays' composers are also part of the repertory. While organizing our silver jubilee year in 2001, we asked a local composer/arranger Eric Swiggers to compose two songs: 'De Knotwilg' and 'Het Schaterend Keeltje'. These songs with texts from local poets, named Frans Babylon and Bert Bijnen tell us the story about 'De Peel' ; the nature reserve, which is very popular among the Deurnes community. In 1996 we recorded our first CD. In 2008, we presented our second CD 'Thanks for the memory'. By using the current repertory list can be listened to mp3 files.
