MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 9 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

Soon Ah Will Be Done With The Troubles Of The World

 A DREAM for present times...
Dad used to sing this with the Horster Mannenkoor!
A younger Dad in 1974—ready to go and SING with his Horster Mannenkoor in Horst, Limburg/The Netherlands.
He has been a great 1st tenor.
In begin 1990s Dad gave us a cassette tape with some of the songs they sang.
Did digitalize a few of those songs—wish I had the original but this already made my singing heart happy...
Enjoy:
When viewed on YouTube you can also read the lyrics below...

  8. Hi, Mariette and Pieter!
    I loved hearing the choir sing and you are previledge, because your father sang in it. Hearing them sing, reminds me of the concert Andre Rieu gave at his home and the church near is house, where the Royal Choir Society Mastreechter Staar participated.
    So beautiful... I bought the DVD to see it every time I want, because I was blown away by it all. Here is the link, if you want to see who entered in the concert: https://www.andrerieu.com/en/about-andre/filmography/home-for-christmas
    And your Dad was indeed very elegant and by all you write of him, he was especially elegant in his heart, as your mom was!
    :)

    1. Dearest Paula,
      THANK you for your meaningful comment and also for the link—loved listening to this favorite of my own Province of Limburg!
      Dad would have loved to be part of the Royal Choir Society Mastreechter Staar but that was about 90 km down south from us.
      Now I'm more than one year a choir member, those memories with Dad singing are even more valuable to me! The only one of the seven (alive) children following in Mom's soprano footsteps and Dad's 81–years of singing.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  9. Only saying it as I see it! ;)
    It must have been wonderful to have both parents singing in choirs. I would love to see you sing, Mariette! Do you have any videos you might post in the blog?

    1. Dearest Paula,
      Well, it was quite an honor for having two happy singing parents.
      Yes, under the label singing you will find a YouTube video but you can't distinguish my voice from the choir like you can Dad's...
      Twice about the Messiah and one about REVUE 2017 with the choir...
      You also can type in those words in the search box—above right.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
