Henk Badings: Maria

Mikaeli Chamber Choir
Anders Eby



Sei gegrüsst
Des Herren Magd
Mit dem Blumenstrauss
Ich sehe dich
Der Stern
Auf der Flucht
Vor der passion
Mariä Himmelsfahrt
O schmerzensreiche Mutter

Unique recording of seldom-heard Dutchman!
Footprint Records proudly presents one of Stockholm’s – and Sweden’s – most prominent choirs on this new CD: the Mikaeli Chamber Choir, conducted by Anders Eby. The choir was founded by Anders Eby in 1972 and has since then become one of the leading choirs in Stockholm. Anders Eby is the professor of choral conducting and choral singing at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

We are equally proud to present a CD containing a composition that rarely – if ever – has been heard on CD: The work Maria by the Dutch composer Henk Badings. This “Maira cyclus” is a 14 piece composition, based on texts about Virgin Mary, originating from different writers, such as Weber, Oelerich, O zur Linde and Rilke. It is written for soloists, choir, flute and violoncello.
