On Birds and Nests

Hebban olla uogala nestas hagunnanpowensemble3

All birds have started to build nests, except for me and you.
Where are we waiting for?

This phrase is generally seen as the oldest sentence in Dutch. Written in the 11th century by a Flemish monk on the cover of a manuscript to try out his pen, it’s a love song that can’t be negated!
In On Birds and Nests the POW Ensemble will follow the mythical figure of Josef Brezelbacker on his search for true love. Will he ever find it? Where? And with whom?
