Programme Notes

When the Bible Society of South Africa started with the very first direct translation of the Bible into Afrikaans, I ordered one of the first 500 numbered editions of the Psalms and New Testament. On the day I received my copy in the post, I set Psalm 23 – probably the best-known Psalm – to music for SATB choir. At that point in time, I was not aware of any other composer who set any of the direct translation texts to music.
