Three Venda Children's Songs image
for solo guitar.
When Charles Ramirez was overhauling the guitar syllabi for the Trinity College grade exams he asked me if I would contribute pieces for the first three grades, and expressed the wish that these would have something of an African aesthetic. I turned again to John Blacking’s transcriptions, this time those of Venda Children’s Songs, and chose three pieces that I felt would translate well into guitar music which was technically elementary but musically challenging. They were commissioned by Trinity College London who first published them in 1997. Michael Blake
