Not to be confused with the "South African National Anthem" "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" (Xhosa pronunciation: [ŋkʼɔsi sikʼɛlɛl‿iafrikʼa], literally "Lord Bless Africa") is a hymn originally composed in 1897 by Enoch Sontonga, a Xhosa clergyman at a Methodist mission school near Johannesburg. The song became a pan-African liberation song and versions of it were later adopted as the national anthems of five states in Africa including Zambia, Tanzania, Namibia and Zimbabwe after independence. Zimbabwe and Namibia have since adopted new compositions for their national anthems. The song's melody is currently used as the national anthem of Tanzania and the national anthem of Zambia; and since 1997, a portion of the national anthem of South Africa.

This arrangement uses two melodies. As the deer pants in the opening of the solo while the accompaniment provides counterpoint with the celebrated Canon in D, the second or last part uses the melodies of Canon in D with variations at some points.
