is/was a great favourite with the Chor Courage Berne
, under the direction of Dirk lbbeken, with whom I had the great pleasure as a bass to sing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
's Coronation Mass during rehearsals in 2001/2002 and finally at a concert given in the St. Aegidus Kirche in Berne in 2002. Here the choir loved to sing it as relaxation between the more serious stuff and for me, this was a completely new gospel which I too joined in with gusto. At my retirement "concert" (Ceilidh 2003
) the Courage Chor gave a terrific rendering of Siyahamba
and left the stage to weave among the audience in a sort of conga line as shown on the left. Great stuff indeed!
