Ntate Ea Mohau

Catalogue no:



Ntate Ea Mohau is one of Moerane’s shortest SATB works, and it makes a very engaging congregational hymn, its three verses based on Hymn no. 152 in the Lesotho hymnal, Lifela tsa Zione. Moerane has composed new music to the old words by Rev. Samuel Rolland, a 19th-century missionary to Lesotho, retaining the simplicity of style and regular two-bar phrasing of the original music by S.W. Martin but changing its harmonic and melodic language quite radically.
