Alexander Fokkens conducts the Rustenburg Girls’ High School, Rondebosch Boys’ High School, and South African College High School choirs and orchestra in this exhilarating and inclusive work which holds such relevance in modern society. It includes extracts from the Ordinary of the Catholic Mass, as well as texts from other religious and historical sources, such as the Islamic call to prayer, the Bible, and the Mahabharata. The texts of writers such as Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Sankichi Toge, who survived the Hiroshima bombing also appear in the work.
