Barmhartigheid ten strijde

philharmonie zuidnederland

Benjamin Britten composed his Cantata misericordium in 1963 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Red Cross. The text tells the parable of Good Samaritan. A musical discourse on peace, compassion and humanity. More charity in The Wound-Dresser by John Adams. Composed poems by Walt Whitman about his time as a nurse on the frontline of the Civil War. Adams: ‘We see the pale skin, the blood, the amputated leg and at the same time the love and tenderness. I wanted to express this in my music.’
