Freedom In Unity – O.A.U. Anthem for Piano
‘Freedom in Unity – O.A.U. Anthem for Piano’ is Mohapeloa’s solo piano version of his anthem of the same name for SATB. Mohapeloa wrote both in 1963, to celebrate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity that year, and perhaps even as his submission for a competition held to find a new O.A.U. anthem. The piano version may have been intended as an accompaniment to the choral version, for Mohapeloa wrote the text between the staves. Mohapeloa wrote this version in staff notation, obviously, and there is no tonic solfa added.
