Uruguayan poet Mario Benedetti’s moving text about love in an imperfect world was beautifully set by Argentinian pop composer Albert Favero, and Maria Guinand has chosen this a cappella arrangement by Cangiano for her series of Latin American music for earthsongs. Harmonies and ranges are no problem. Dramatic, “muy expresivo” changes of tempo and dynamics are demanded. Simple and beautiful solos for alto and baritone. Duration – 4:00.
