In the album Brabant 1653, Holland Baroque explores the monastic musical traditions of 17th-century North Brabant. Together with a group of established early music vocalists. Brabant 1653 unveils hidden gems of Dutch music history, as well as of baroque music at large.

The album’s central figure is Benedictus à Sancto Josepho, pre-eminent organist, and composer of Brabant in the late seventeenth century and known in France as “le grand Carme”. By putting his music and that of contemporaries in the limelight, Holland Baroque artistic directors Judith and Tineke Steenbrink search for a distinguishable Brabant Style. The album convincingly demonstrates that the Netherlands possessed a much richer musical culture than is usually acknowledged.

Holland Baroque is an original and innovative baroque orchestra that approaches baroque repertoire through a fresh and contemporary approach. They offer a focus on improvisation and collaborations with outstanding artists from different traditions.

Brabant 1653 is their third Pentatone album, after having released Silk Baroque (2019) and Polonoise (2021) – both also available at NativeDSD.

Holland Baroque also appears on 7 albums and 5 samplers on the Channel Classics Records label. All are available in DSD at NativeDSD Music.  Check this link with their Channel Classics and Pentatone releases in DSD & DXD at the NativeDSD Music Store.

Press reviews

Pizzicato 4 out of 5

Holland Baroque, together with some vocalists, has recorded 17th century monastic music from North Brabant. The album is called Brabant 1653 and contains baroque music reconstructed by Judith and Tineke Steenbrink.

Several pieces of this sacred music are taken from Benedictus à Sancto Josepho. And so, this production presents a good and new insight into the rich musical culture of the Netherlands. The interpretations are well phrased stylish and due to the sensitive interaction between soloists and ensemble, the get a great expressiveness.
