Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD offers a representative selection from the broad repertoire of the University of Pretoria Camerata, and thus includes well-known works from the Western art canon, contemporary European choral music and modern music from Africa. The University of Pretoria Camerata, a mixed choir comprising 65 students, was officially established in 1968. Its mission is to contribute towards the cultural development of the student body, to enrich the broader community by means of choral singing, and to act as cultural ambassadors of the University of Pretoria. Johann van der Sandt was born in Kroonstad in the Orange Free State. He studied music at the University of Pretoria (organ, piano, clarinet and vocal training) and sang in the University Choir.
