Behind that long and lonely trenched lineTo which men come and go, where brave men die,There is a yet unmarked and unknown shrine,A broken plot, a soldier’s cemetery.
There lie the flower of youth, the men who scorn’dTo live (so died) when languished Liberty:Across their graves flowerless and unadornedStill scream the shells of each artillery.
When war shall cease this lonely unknown spotOf many a pilgrimage will be the end,And flowers will shine in this now barren plot
And fame upon it through the years descend:But many a heart upon each simple crossWill hang the grief, the memory of its loss.

Written with the organ in De Doelen’s Grote Zaal in mind. Therefore, the architecture of the organ takes center stage, becoming the vehicle for the development of musical discourse; meaning that this piece is about exploring the different, independent parts of this special organ, and the way they interact with each other and the space around them — the way that the sound from each individual section propagates within the hall. All the while creating an intense, introspective atmosphere.

This performance was the Tarwewijk choir’s compositional response to the Mevlanaplein Railway overpass and was performed as part of a public intervention there.
