Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías

Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías audiofile (12:33)

A lot of people find this blog by searching for Lorca's Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías. The original audio I posted was of poor quality and was broken in segments because of audioblogger's constraints, so I've decided to post a new, cleaner version which is all of a piece. Text here.

That's a great reading, John. What a moving poem.

Glad you like it, Brenda. I sure am much happier with this version than the first one.

I am actually doing a 3D animation with real bullfighting footages adaptation of this poem.

Just wanted to let you know that you might need to emphasize more the sadness that evolves the poem in the sound file that you have created. It doesn't sound as convincing as it should. Although a nice try.

I have made a sound file myself (in Spanish though) To adapt it to the 3d animation project that im doing.

If you would like to have it to hear where do i emphasize more, email me and i will send it to you happily.

Much Cordially
