History & Mission:

The Bach tradition in Zaandam dates back to 1977, when Jan Pasveer started monthly cantata concerts with his "Zaans Cantate Koor" in the "Bullekerk". When the choir ceased to exist in 2002, many people wished the Bach tradition to continue. As a result "Collegium Vocale Zaandam" was established, led by Cor Brandenburg, a student of Jan Pasveer and organ player in Pasveer's concert series. The choir is accompanied by the professional baroque orchestra "Eik en Linde", that plays old instruments or copies thereof (all in old tuning), in an attempt to approach the sound in Bach's days.

The concerts concentrate on (but are not limited to) the cantatas and motets of J.S. Bach. Regularly works of other (early) Baroque composers can be heard.
