Obra coral a partir del poema de Langston Hughes:

 

“The Negro Speaks of Rivers”

I´ve known rivers:
I´ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the
flow of human blood in human veins.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns where young.
I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.
I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln
went down to New Orleans, and I´ve seen it´s muddy
bosom turn all golden in the sunset.

I´ve known rivers:
Ancient, dusky rivers.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
