program note

›Liefde een woning‹ [›Love a home‹] is a part of Gioiosamente Canto, a cycle of madrigals for which Sandra Macrander wrote the poems and Willem Boogman the music. The texts are in Dutch.
›Liefde een woning‹ consists of eighteen short poems that in different groupings form the text for eight madrigals. The madrigals unite love, word and music in a ›Gioia che mai non fina‹ (›Joy without end‹). The madrigals can be performed separately or in a series which is selected from the collection. A musical trait d'union may precede each madrigal group of madrigals.
