Abstract

The Batavian Revolution in the winter of 1794-1795 was greeted with song and dance all over the Netherlands. The first months of festivities were not, however, simply spontaneous expressions of joy over regained freedom, they were carefully designed events that had to bring people together after years of political turbulence. During these celebrations, the singing of revolutionary songs functioned as a practice that concretised abstract revolutionary ideals and made them available to the experience of the singers. As such, the revolutionary festivals and their songs offered people both spaces in which to imagine the shape of a new Batavian order, as well as opportunities to participate in and identify with this new order.
