Tale van Liefde (Languages of Love) was inspired by the Afrikaans hymn "Praat ek mense, eng'le tale" based on the text from 1 Corinthians 13. The piano accompaniment subtly quotes the hymn melody, which you might recognise as the tune from Beethoven's "Ode to Joy". The piece carries a strong message: unless our words carry love for those who live and speak differently from us, they will fall on silent ears. After a short 2-part introduction, the melody is presented in unison, and then in 3-part canon, imitating crowds speaking to one another. Throughout, a small group underscores the harmony with a pedal chant, listing the languages in which we can speak love. The work is best suited for Afrikaans-speakers. .
