The word "Uirapuru" is the name of both an actual Amazonian bird (also known as the Musician Wren) and a mythical creature. In the rain forest, the bird Uirapuru sings once a year, when it builds its nest; even then, only from five to ten minutes early in the morning. According to the legend, Uirapuru's song is so beautiful that all other birds stop singing to listen to it. Yet in another version of the legend, a human being is transformed after his death into the enchanted Uirapuru, breathing new life into the silent forest. Both in legend and reality, Uirapuru is a symbol of rarefied beauty. An actual recording of Uirapuru's song (link follows) was the basis of this piece and can be heard several times throughout it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZpFgD1_2dc. 4 pages. Performance time: approximately 4:20.

Also available as part of the "Departure" songbook.
