oa South African Journal of Cultural History - Die Krugerhuisversameling van Boergesinde musiek deur buitelandse komponiste, geskryf tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog (1899-1902)
Drastic events in the history of a country or a nation often find expression in a variety of art works. Meaningful music is also frequently written during or after wars. With the commencement of the centenary celebrations of the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) in 1999, various aspects of this war will be highlighted anew. The Kruger House Collection of pro-Boer music is a striking example of the creative output in the sphere of music, which illustrates some of the world-wide sympathy with the Afrikaner's struggle for freedom against Britain during the Anglo-Boer War. This article presents a survey of these pro-Boer compositions by foreigners in the Kruger House Collection.
