The Andrew Mellon Michael Mosoeu Moerane Critical Edition
Prof Christine Lucia
This Edition is complete, and if it were not for coronavirus would have been launched in May 2020 at Stellenbosch University. The wonderful work done by Research Assistant Mpho Ndebele in translating Moerane’s texts was finished by the middle of 2019, the typesetting of Moerane’s orchestral work in Sibelius by Post-Doc Fellow Marc Röntsch was also completed last year, as was some of the choral typesetting by PhD student Mokale Koapeng and Masters student Kgaugelo Mpyane. To all of them, profound thanks for your hard work.
Christine Lucia finalised the Edition over the past year. It runs to more than 600 pages and includes 51 scores, 51 historical introductions, and 51 critical commentaries, as well as a Catalogue of Moerane’s works and a General Introduction to the Edition.
Masters student Zayne Upton has continued working hard to create the right conditions for the whole Edition and the resources associated with it on the website of African Composers Edition: https://www.african-composers-edition.co.za.
Samples from the Edition will appear here on the AOI site as a ‘featured image’, as and when the 51 works are uploaded on the ACE site.
