Description:

Once a year, on the last Sunday in April, voters in the Appenzell Inner Rhodes canton in northeastern Switzerland gather in an open-air plaza for the traditional "Landsgemeinde" (blue sky assembly), in which they vote by a show of hands on whether to amend laws or elect cantonal representatives. This day is considered the most important day of the year, and people gather to sing. There is a traditional chorale sung for this day, but in the past, only men sang it because women did not have the right to vote. It is said that most people did not know that the poem used in the chorale was written by a female poet, Caroline Rudolfi. Her hymn has been set to music many times, the best known being by Johann Heinrich Toepler (1777-1838), who served as Chancellor of Appenzell. This time, Lutz himself has set music to this poem and made it into a cantata. The entire piece is about 20 minutes long, but the content and performance are both powerful. (C)RS
