Voices from the trenches

frans duits engels

Eleven soldiers, twelve poems, twelve songs


The 12 songs from the 'voices from the trenches' project can be heard in a live performance. John Nuyten has composed the songs for voice and guitar. While the lyrics stay intact, the music is easy to listen to and can best be described as 'between classical music and folkmusic'. The music is performed by Lizet van Beek (vocals) and John Nuyten (guitar).

A complete program takes about one and a halve hour. Before each song Lizet and John can give a small introduction about the poet and the meaning and background of the poem. The project is also very suitable for intermezzos in bigger programs, concerning the First World War, like memorials, or lectures.
