The Nederlands Kamerkoor was established in 1937, and has been one of the world’s top choirs for decades. It has been internationally praised by critics for its homogeneous sound and for the soloist quality of the singers.
One of the choir’s missions is to keep choral music very much alive as an art form, by looking for new formats, by innovative commissions and exciting collaborations. It results in concerts that are not only perceived as beautiful, but that appeal to all senses.
“Echoes of Heaven and Earth” was composed in 1998 and premiered by Nederlands Kamerkoor. This music piece perfectly mixes the musical cultures of the Tibetan nationality and the Han nationality, the music forms of chanting and singing, and the creation techniques of national mode and modern one. It is a contemporary choral work manifesting the religious history and philosophical thought in China.
