Freedom Is Coming is an incredibly infectious celebration of hope and freedom from oppression and is coupled here with Hamba Vangeli (`Spread the new word') for Soprano, Alto and combined men's voices along with a piano accompaniment. Pay attention to the dynamics - there are lots of opportunities for contrasts and a gradual build-up of texture, as well as chances for soloists to sing out. These two songs, along with Siyahamba and many others, also feature in L'Estrange's hit cantata Zimbe! Come sing the songs of Africa!
