cantata morusu

http://youtu.be/EZjIoipMqzI
we have finally managed to upload an excerpt of a recent performance of my cantata profana, thoriso le morusu, played here at die groote kerk in cape town’s church square with the simon estes alumni choir and myself at the piano and conducting (awkwardly, let it be said).
based on a poem by antjie krog entitled, “country of grief and grace”, the piece is about the violence we inflict on those closest to us and how we might hope to transcend that impulse.

we hope you can find some joy in it
