James Whitbourn – Annelies

reSound, a Northwest chamber ensemble, is honored to present Annelies – James Whitbourn’s stunning, full-length choral work with libretto compiled and translated by Melanie Challenger from Anne Frank’s The Diary of a Young Girl. This moving journey as told by Annelies Marie Frank, known to the world as Anne Frank, through the collection of letters and private thoughts recorded in her diary between 1942 and her untimely death in early 1945 at the age of 15 in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, has inspired millions of readers since it was first published in Dutch in 1947 by Anne’s father, Otto Frank. Melanie Challenger’s libretto, set to music so carefully and beautifully by James Whitbourn, captures the essence of Anne’s humor, her fears and observations, and her unwavering hope when facing one of the worst horrors that the modern world has endured.

“I see the world being slowly turned into wilderness. I hear the approaching thunder, that one day will destroy us too. And yet, when I look at the sky, I feel that everything will change for the better.” — Anne Frank, July 15, 1944
