Description: Cats combined a career as an administrator, culminating in a position as Attorney General of the province of Holland, with a life-long predilection for writing poetry and songs of a humorous and moralizing nature (morals which we would call today "male Neanderthal"). This collection, based on a recent doctoral thesis, collects 26 songs, many of which were still being sung a hundred years later. So, a pop artist of the period, resurrected for our much later delectation! Dutch texts, English synopses. Camerata Trajectina.
