WEPENER, Cas J.. Wat maak 'n kerkorrel gereformeerd? 'n Verkenning van Afrikaanse 'gereformeerde' musiek in die jare 1980 en 1990 in Suid-Afrika. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp.1-8. ISSN 2074-7705.

In this article, the meaning of a combination of the adjective 'reformed' and the noun 'music' is explored. The main question is: What can be termed 'reformed music'? In order to answer this question, some of the work on liturgy by the theologians Smit, Old and McKee will be explored, specifically their understanding of 'reformed liturgy'. Throughout, the article takes the form of a historical reflexive autoethnographic journey into the life and experiences of the author of this article in the period roughly stretching from 1986 to 1996. In particular, it focuses on the way in which the author appropriated two different kinds of music genres. His exposure to both reformed church music and the alternative Afrikaans music movement, which included rock bands such as Johannes Kerkorrel en die Gereformeerde Blues Band will be scrutinised. Ultimately, the aim of this journey is to establish which one of these two music genres from this specific period in the history of South Africa is worthy of the name 'reformed music'.
