Message from Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus

Congratulations on this worthy project. I commend you on this celebration of our linguistic diversity. Through our mother tongue we express our deepest thoughts and dream our richest dreams. We have a wonderful country with wonderful people - I hope that all South Africans will want to learn the language of their neighbours so they can experience more fully the blessings of our rainbow nation. God bless you +Desmond M Tutu Archbishop Emeritus


Message from Prof. Calie Pistorius, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Pretoria The University of Pretoria strives to give its students the opportunity to experience a variety of extramural activities in addition to their formal studies so as to become well-rounded citizens. Membership of the University’s choirs in one of the ways that this is achieved. Besides informal groups, the University currently has three major choirs: the Tuks Camerata, the Chorale and the Concert Choir, the repertoires of which concentrate on different genres of choral music, thereby show-casing the cultural diversity that characterizes the University’s campuses. South Africa’s cultural diversity is portrayed strongly through the eleven languages that are given official recognition in the country’s Constitution. Each is a key to unlocking the cultural doors of the peoples of South Africa, doors that all open into the common home of the “rainbow nation”, a home in which the diverse cultural assets of our nation are to be respected and cherished. One means of encouraging this is through the use of the truly international medium of communication, music. Singing in each other’s languages promotes understanding and appreciation of the traditions of our diverse country, besides conveying beauty and pleasure to the artists and audience alike. And what more auspicious occasion exists for doing this, for using our eleven languages, than on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year of South Africa’s democratic era? As a visual portrayal of the concept of one home nurturing diverse traditions, the cover of this CD pictures a nest with the eggs of several South African birds in it, each symbolizing the treasures of its species, and all contained in a mutually supportive environment, our South African homeland. Working, playing and singing together, respecting what each has to offer, for the common good, will undoubtedly contribute to the success of the South African nation. I would therefore like to thank those who conceived the idea of this CD and commend it, not only to music lovers, but to all who appreciate crossing cultural boundaries in pursuit of the treasures that are waiting to be found by those who do so. Professor Calie Pistorius
