Q: Name a section in "Kruis van Liefde" that gives you goosebumps every time:
A: “XXIII. Hy Hang Voor My”. The pain you feel when singing this movement is intense. Sung from the perspective of the soldier beside the cross. The realisation that Jesus was innocent after it’s already too late. And whilst seeing Him on the cross, the growing desperation of the soldier for forgiveness for what he has done. Listen to it here:
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
A: New Zealand, to watch the All Blacks play rugby live.🏉
