    I have done this piece twice with a choir of college students and community singers. It's a challenge, but a lot of fun when accomplished. The piece is a stirring pastiche of many different scenes / styles of music, and requires rhythmic dexterity from the singers. Singers have enjoyed the...

    opportunity to try out some "click" sounds in some of the Zulu language sections. Highly recommended!

    My choir sang this song when we went on tour to europe, i have to say that the emotion in the song is almost overwhelming. To know the story behind it really gives you a whole new outlook on this peice. The arranger did an amazing job with this song...

    . it really made me want to research about the history of Africa. Every Time my choir performed this song we got standing ovations and to see the look of achievement on our composers face was just amazing! I love everything about this song and there couldn't be a thing done to make it better. All I can say is Wow!
