This setting of the African National Antherm for Recorders, makes a great sounding arrangement for your next concert.

This is not an anthem for a nation, but for a whole continent. Originating with the Bantu people in South Africa, it is now sung throughout Africa in various languages. The melody is also used by Zambia, South Africa and Tanzania in their respective National Anthems.

Check out my latest recorder work published in the American Recorder Society Journal of 2011, entitled Havana Rhubarb Rumba.
