Louis van Tulder, tenor

The Dutch tenor Louis van Tulder (1892-1969) was born in Amsterdam. He came from a large Roman Catholic family, being the tenth child. He sang as a treble and continued as a tenor when his voice broke. His début was in Haydn’s Die Jahreszeiten in 1912 when the tenor who had been engaged fell ill during the performance. From 1916 he was a principal tenor at the Netherlands Opera where his rôles included the title-rôle in Gounod’s Faust, Lionel in Martha and Rodolfo in La Bohème, but left after five years for a career on the concert platform. His European engagements included regular concerts in Germany. He formed the Hollansch Vocaal Kwartet with the soprano Jo Vincent, the contralto Suze Luger-van Beuge and the bass Willem Ravelli. Van Tulder took part in Bach’s St Matthew Passion on over five hundred occasions, many of which were as the Evangelist. Retiring in 1950, he later taught and conducted various choral organizations. He died following a car accident in Hilversum. He recorded for Columbia and Philips.
