Oude Kerk, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
And now Oude Kerk or 'Old Church'. We are stopping here because this is where Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck succeeded his father as an organist. Sweelinck was born in Amsterdam in1562 and died in Amsterdam in October 1621. Apparently he never left Amsterdam, although he did travel to Antwerp, Belgium and Rotterdam. We'll be staying here 2 days from the 2-4 of February.
