mayibuye suite for organ (2001)

A 3-movement virtuoso concert piece for solo organ: I. Prelude, II. African Hymn, III. Toccata. Commissioned for an international competition in 2001, and inspired by the anti-apartheid rallying cry, 'mayibuye, iAfrika!' (come back, Africa). The music draws on the composer's compositional principles of 'clazz', a crossover between classical music and jazz, as he explains in the detailed 'Composer's notes' that preface the score.
