Line Drawings Music Of Jacob Van Eyck

Genevieve Lacey
"Jacob's been a friend for decades. Almost as long as I've been playing the recorder, I've been playing Jacob's music. Perhaps because I first met and loved him when I was little, his voice feels like my instrument's mother tongue. Jacob's simple melodies were so sweet for my young fingers. In adolescence, his music expressed things I couldn't, yet meant with all my being. Jacob was there in my learning-my-craft years, his music urging me through the long, solitary practice tunnel. Nowadays I'm discovering expressive sides of him I didn't recognise earlier ... He died centuries ago, but he's shaped me" - Genevieve Lacey

Born blind at the end of the sixteenth century, Van Eyck came to be hailed as 'the Orpheus of Utrecht' in his lifetime and is now regarded as one of the most significant musicians of his generation. He is best remembered, however, for his collection of works for solo soprano recorder 'Der Fluyten Lust-hof' (The Flute's Pleasure Garden) – a collection of over 140 melodies and variations, with themes sourced from popular folk songs, psalms and memorable tunes of the time.
