Eres …
composer
1994
author of text
Testamento de Otoņo

Introduction
Eres … is a setting of a love poem (Testamento de Otoño) by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. The poem’s obvious parallel is with the Song of Songs in that it deals ecstatically with the appreciation of the human form in mundane and spiritual ways simultaneously. The minimalist setting by the Portuguese composer Eugénio Manuel Rodrigues is spacious and mysterious; it culminates in a representation of the wind passing through the branches of a tree.
