Vocal ensemble Il Cocodrillo Cante

The mysterious equations of love

Vocal ensemble Il Cocodrillo Cante was formed in 1990 by a number of choral music enthusiasts, who loved to sing in a small ensemble. The name of the ensemble, now consisting of well-trained singers, has been derived from the madrigal Il Cocodrillo Geme (the crocodile weeps) by Vecchi. In 1991, the leadership by Julia Blank, was handed over to Jeanet Bosch. Since then the repertoire of Il Cocodrillo Cante covers different styles: Renaissance (Josquin, Ockeghem), Baroque (Purcell, Schütz, Bach) and 20th-century repertoire (Hindemith, Stravinsky, Messiaen). Il Cocodrillo Cante gave several concerts abroad (Switzerland, France and Germany) and is frequently heard in the region. Every year the choir presents one or two new programs, a cappella or with a small instrumental ensemble. A few highlights are Purcell’s opera Dido & Aeneas, the Petite Messe Solenelle by Rossini, Ein deutsches Requiem by Brahms, Messe des Morts by Jean Gilles and the Mattheuspassie by J.S. Bach translated in Dutch by Jan Rot. More details can be found at www.cocodrillo.nl
