I dedicate this to all of our Dutch friends and members! :-)

Albert Pomper (1862, Sneek - 1917, Amsterdam), became the organist of the "Round" Lutheran Church in 1884, and in 1893, the organist of the Old Lutheran Church in Amsterdam. He also was carillonneur; first from the South Tower, later from the Mint Tower. In 1880, he was appointed organ teacher at the Institute for the Blind, where he received his musical training, after he had become blind at the age of six. As a (concert) organist, he also had an excellent reputation outside Amsterdam.

In this hymn, composed on the occasion of the marriage of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and her Prince consort, the melodies of the Lutheran hymn "Ein' feste Burg ist unser Gott" and the famous "Wilhelmus" - now the official national anthem of the Netherlands are interwoven. This composition from 1901 is for bass and organ.
