Tribute to Rutger Kopland (1934-2012)For quite a while I have admired the poem "XIV" by Rutger Kopland. A few days after I had finished making this song from his poem, I heard the news that he had died at the age of 77. I dedicate this song to him. One can sing the poem to the song, but I thought of your mental sanity and in the end made it a song with unsung words.
(translations of poetry should not be attempted by amateurs like me ;) )
