The Grammy nominated piece is set to a poem by famed poet Pablo Neruda. The composition is stylish and sophisticated and will be a welcome addition to music set in the Spanish language. The title translates “My Blood.”
[ Errata ]
Here are the bread and wine, the table and the house:
the needs of a man, of a woman, of life.
To this place, peace rushed in, spinning round and round.
To make this light, a shared fire burned.
Hail to your two hands that fly, baking
the white creations of kitchen and song.
Hail! the virtue of your busy feet,
Long live the ballerina who dances with her broom!
Those rough rivers, with their currents and threats,
Those tormented pavilions of foam,
those hives and reefs aflame:
today they are this respite of your blood in mine,
this path, star-strewn and blue as night,
this endless simplicity of tenderness.
