The Libertas Choir conducted by Johan de Villiers , accompanied by the Ramon Alexander Trio, presents a production with a strong Cape Town flavour, with visits also to the rest of South Africa and beyond. Several newly commissioned choral arrangements are performed, including a District 6: The Musical medley by Camillo Lombard ; the Cape 1970’s group Pacific Express hit I Hear Music by Ramon Alexander; as well as altogether three offerings from the expert arranger Melissa van der Spuy, namely Amanda Strydom’s evocative Ek Loop Die Pad, the vibrant Lig op die Horison from Joshua na die Reën and a Glory medley, in which she ingeniously combines segments  from Vivaldi’s Gloria, John Legend’s Glory from the movie Selma, and William Steffen’s  stirring Glory Hallelujah from Battle of the Republic. Also in the programme are five a cappella motets by the celebrated Welsh composer Karl Jenkins, and authentic renderings of traditional Zulu songs.
