covers & complete booklet (english, french, german)
PDF with the poems by Neruda in the original Spanish
The booklet provides the poems only in the sung Swedish language and a German translation.
As stated in the booklet, there were legal reasons not to print the original Spanish poems and (at least) an English translation.
Well, I found the original poems by Pablo Neruda in Spanish on the net (Thanks to the Universidad de Chile :) ).
I compiled a PDF of the 5th part "La arena traicionada" (The betrayed sand) and add it to this upload.
Not so well, and I'm really sorry, I havn't found yet at least an english translation of the sung poems.
If you can provide English or any other language translations of the poems, please post them. TIA!
Enjoy the music !
BTW, the other volumes will be posted every two or three days.
