I was introduced to this piece by the 2008 New Mexico Allstate Mixed Choir. They performed the opening munber and it was such an exciting and unusual blend of classical singing, authentic African folk music, and drumming that I had to listen to the whole piece. Fanshawe spend some time roaming Africa and recording religious ceremonies from Egypt through Senegal and down to South Africa. Since Africa is a mixture of tribal cultures, Judeo-Christian faiths, Jews and Muslim, this piece of music reflects those integrations. Sometimes uneasy, at other times profound, but always compelling, this piece will make you want to visit Africa for yourself. "Mama G" a New Mexico music teacher
unfortunate at best
blood, except for one song, these fools railroaded over the top of some beautiful soulful songs with very harsh and out of tune classical music. The possible collaboration of these two forms with a little more flex in both styles poses potential brilliance. "African" Sanctus sounded like they weren't listening to what they were playing with they just did they're intense and tense thing. gimmie this abulm without the symphony chorus or do it in harmony! -one man's...
I was one of the truly fortunate few to participate in the performance of this piece alongside Dr. Fanshaw himself. It was performed in Wyoming, mere months before his passing. My words to the people who reviewed this poorly, never actually understood what Fanshaw accomplished with his recordings and arrangements. This music is a photograph of cultures, many of which were destoryed within a year after Fanshaw travelled across Africa and the Sudan to record what he did. I shall never forget the Fanshaw family and what an impact that his music has had on my life, and the lives of the people who were able to witness it live in concert. Thank you sir. As you always said, Music Is Life, and thank you for enriching my own.
