Spirit of Africa is written as a companion piece to David Fanshawe's African Sanctus and is inspired by the colours and symbolic meanings of the flags of Egypt, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya, the countries visited by David during his travels recording music for African Sanctus in 1969-1973.

The words and music of the five movements trace a journey through the day, with the colour white for daybreak mist, green for morning freshness, red for midday heat, gold for sunset and black for night; each with its own mood and character, hopes and fears.

Spirit of Africa is dedicated to David and his wife Jane.

Words by Jennifer Henderson.
