Starting in 2010, a careful selection from one of the choirbooks will be made each year and performed in a series of concerts.
The record company Etcetera Records has committed itself to the release of six 2CD’s over the next six years.
The artistic director of the Egidius Kwartet, Peter de Groot, together with Paul van Nevel and Professor Eric Jas, will make a selection from each choirbook.
The Egidius Kwartet will publish all the works from the Leiden Choirbooks that have not so far appeared in a modern edition. In addition to this, a popular-science book is planned for 2011.
This project offers numerous opportunities in the area of education. The quartet will make itself available to give presentations, guest lectures and workshops for professionals and amateurs alike.
Exhibition and displays
During the concert series, the public will be offered ample opportunity to find out more about the choir books and even to examine them.
