Sang by slovakian choir Omnia. Text by a writter called Jan Fratrik (in sheet accidentaly Jozef) was at a collection of his many poems to choose from to composittion at year 2015. Finally recorded at May of 2016 so I can post it here. Very simple harmonies, colors in the middle (although hard to understand words don't you think?). The piece was also reworked and the silent spots have been reduced, harmonies (especially at the empty ending cadence) reworked, some rhytm altered in some cases where the nature of the words demanded it and solo added to the middle part. Also transposed to f minor as I felt sopranos at the premiere had a bit of problem to have a clear f2) If you want I can add the reworked sheet music but unless so I don't find it necessary to put it here since the recording is in this first version. I'll try to translate the best I can: Girl of pale cheeks, you have the desires of swallows, soft, velvet voice smile always full of brightness. Girl...from the suburbs. With charm you know to wheedle, you won't say about beauty, when in shivers through my whole body I loose myself in a white dream even rhyme lost itself from poems, and heavy smoke from cigarettes. Stop oh stop the time, may it flows by us, may music sounds forever, on precious noon. To the girls...of our cities. (By no means my translation represents the poem in an aesthetic way. I translated it only so you may know roughly what is it singing about if you don't speak slovak language.)
