Pelo Le Moea and Nonyana Tse Ntle are the only two extant songs by Moerane written for Soprano and Alto. They are perfect little studies in two-part counterpoint, perhaps written for school use although we do not know exactly when. The lyrics of Pelo Le Moea are ‘Setsoto’, implying that Moerane drew from a traditional Lesotho source, in order to express a touching tribute to familial love. The style of the music is rather Schumannesque, the last 4 bars reminiscent of the opening of his Waldscenen No. 6: ‘Herberge’ (Inn). When the score is purchased, a free download of the spoken Sesotho lyrics is available.
