Taken from Songs Between The Soul And The Bridegroom.
Canciones entre el alma y el esposo is a poem consisting of forty verses. Having previously set two sections of it as separate a cappella choruses and one for two countertenors and strings, I've long wanted to make a complete setting of the work and, by arranging the countertenor piece for a cappella chorus and setting the remaining verses as two more anthems for the same forces, I've completed the task. The five pieces can of course still be performed separately, or brought together as a twenty-five minute setting of Roy Campbell's translation from the original Spanish of this vivid and intense poem."
