Suite of melodies from the ‘Old book of songs from Haarlem’ (1716)

Quartier-meester verheven
Adieu Haarlem, schoone stede
Hansje de Backer
Kond' ich eens recht bedwingen
Dat alle bergen goude waren
O, roosjen root vol melodyen
Van moy Elsjen
Edel kerson
Boerenkermis
Het daget uyt den Oosten
Des hadde een Swave een dochterlijn
Het spruyt een roosjen
Den tijd is hier
De gehangene
Den mey
Het waren twee koninghskinderen
Het nachtegaeltje kleyne

About Bertus van Lier

Bertus van Lier

Composer Bertus van Lier was a versatile and determined intellectual. From the start of World World II he upheld his principles against the occupier. During and after the war he maintained this attitude towards those colleagues who were suspected of collaboration with the enemy. In compositions written during the war, Van Lier expressed his resistance to the deprivation of liberty, especially in his vocal works. After the liberation his work as composer diminished and he focused on his activities as a musicologist, pedagogue and publicist.
