Happy weekend steemians! Let’s start high, with music and poetry. Today I want to tell you about the poem “Amor de mi Alma”, written by Garcilaso de la Vega (1503 – 1536), and brought to music under the beautiful musical arrangement of Z. Randall Stroope.
Love of my soul
I was not born but to love;
my soul has cut you to your measure;
by habit of the soul I love you.
Written in my soul is your gesture,
I read it only that even of you I keep in this.
How much do I confess, I trust;
for you I was born, for you I have life,
And for you and to die and for you I die.
A short poem with such a profound lyric come together and make a new work of art under the musical arrangement to four mixed voices of the contemporary artist Z. Randall Stroope. In the following video I share a link to the version made by the Simón Bolívar National Choir, under the direction of Maestro T. J. Harper at the National Center for Social Action for Music in Caracas, Venezuela, 2016.
