A Re Eeng (1980 recording)
In the 1937 score of A Re Eeng Mohapeloa expresses the excitement of boarding a train heading for the ‘big city’ and the anguish of parting from loved ones. The noise of the tracks is represented by a persistent three-note figure and there is a sense of winding down at the end. The Evangelical Lutheran Church Choir of Orlando West sings the SATB song on this 1980 recording made by the SABC. (The conductor is not specified.) This historic recording was reissued in 2014 by ACE as Track 17 on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa.
