A Canção das Canções


“King Solomon’s ‘Song of Songs’, one of the most heart-felt and expressive love poems ever written, resonates over two millennia as a work of beauty, fascination and inspiration for all peoples. From first-century Palestine, when the ‘Song of Songs’ was sung in taverns, to the Middle Ages, when the work was a subject of liturgy for monks and nuns, the poem’s capability to transcend from sensual to spiritual and back, without losing its essential character, purity and beauty, is something that captures the imagination. “A voyage through language, life and love, King Solomon's masterpiece has journeyed from its Hebrew origins, across ancient languages no longer spoken, to the languages of our time. Music, timeless as it is and receptive to every emotion, feeling and thought; is the Language of Languages I am speaking through my compositional interpretation of the great ‘Song of Songs’.

Por muito aborrecida que seja, a Gramática tem alguns encantos. Há um par de versos nos Amores de Ovídio... ad mea formosos vultus adhibete, puellae, carmina, purpureus quae mihi dictat Amor!... sabeis?... as canções são lugares, lugares para onde as raparigas de Ovídio... e os nossos espíritos... se inclinam... é a voz dá vida a tudo... é uma pena que tantos escrevam e leiam e tão poucos cantem. Os textos estão todos mortos, mas posso estar enganado, como é costume.
