Sometimes it is events, other times persons that Camerata Trajectina presents. Today it is the turn of Johannes Stalpaert van der Wiele; there is a statue of him in the Begijnhof in Delft. A 17th-century archpriest who wrote in addition to being a priest - hymns to saints, battle poems against Reformed doctrine. And set new (Dutch) texts to existing melodies. Like on those of the 5- and 6-part madrigals by Luca Marenzio. This composer was in the service of aristocratic Italian families such as the Gonzagas, the d'Estes and the Medici. Wrote some 500 madrigals, cheerful and light, but also serious. His influence reached as far away as England, where he was included in the collection Musica Transalpina that sparked the 16th-century "madrigal craze.
