Composition for Chamber Choir, Church Organ and Carillon.

For the combination of choir, organ and carillon, the church walls have to be, metaphorically, torn down and the church tower demolished. The carillon descends from the high bell tower and joins the choir and organ. The boundaries between church music and secular music are, so the speak, literally removed.

Although choirs, organs and bell towers have been in close proximity to each other for centuries, practically no repertoire has been composed for this line-up. But now we know why: this occupation causes almost insurmountable technical problems. Technology brings salvation in the 21st century. With the help of extensive technical tools, the Voices, Pipes & Bells project finally brings the three elements together, so that everyone can see and hear how beautiful they sound together!
