Poem on ‘white death’ turned into song

Maria-Mercè Marçal wrote her touching poem ‘Covava l’ou de la mort blanca’ when she already knew that she was suffering from cancer, ‘la mort blanca’ (‘white death’).

It was set to music by Sílvia Pérez Cruz who also performs the song on this video. Posted on World Cancer Day (4 February).
