Tradition and Renewal in Dutch Song culture

Short description:

In this project the concept ‘From Hadewijch tot Hazes’ is explored, i.e. a song culture from religious music in the Middle Ages to present-day folksingers. The process of tradition and renewal implies a constant production and consumption of new songs, while old songs may be maintained, reconsidered, changed and loaded with new meanings – or simply forgotten. special attention will be given to editions of songs by Hadewijch and Jacob Cats, the Thysius Lute Manuscript, theare music and links between medieval repertoire and orally transmitted songs.
