voordat ik zag (before i saw)

Voordat ik Zag (Before I Saw) was commissioned by the USKO (the Utrecht Students Choir & Orchestra). The lyrics are by the Dutch performer/singer/poet Herman van Veen, who wrote : "I thought it was wonderful. Serene and clear as water from the tap. All those young people, who together, led by the inspiring Gilles Michels on Douwe Eisenga's post-minimal sounds, succeeded to touch me deeply".
