(Stop, Stop!)


choir SATB
Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa Critical Edition

Hook, Haneu is a choral works for SATB published by Mohapeloa in 1939 and written in syncopated close harmony. Its tight-textured rhythms and fast tempo depict the cliff-hanging ride of high-spirited young men driving a horse-cart. Bonamelo Adult Choir (conductor not specified) sings it on a live recording made by the SABC in December 1990 during the Old Mutual Music Festival at the Standard Bank Arena, Johannesburg. This historic recording was re-issued by ACE in 2014 as Track 28 on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa.
