Marianne Feenstra is a lecturer in the School of Music, University of Cape Town. She specialises in the teaching of harmony, counterpoint and form. Marianne is particularly interested in the development of the choral tradition amongst the indigenous people of South Africa. She is currently researching the life and works of Daniel Cornelius Marivate, one of the major figures in South African choral music in the period approximately 1930 to 1980. Marivate's works represent major stylistic elements common to this genre, which has remained relatively unchanged for the last 70-odd years.
