The most useful collection of Schubert songs available! Unlike international editions, these new songbooks contain only a few favourite songs from Die Schöne Müllerin and Die Wintereisse, rather than the rarely-used entire song cycles; this leaves room for many more wonderful individual songs not normally found in Schubert collections.
As in the other volumes in The Vocal Library, each song features introductory notes including information about the composition, the song's biographical context in Schubert's life, early performances and comments about poets. The contents for the High Voice and Low Voice editions are almost the same: the High Voice volume uniquely includes Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (with removable clarinet part) and Auf dem Strom (with removable horn part); the Low Voice volume uniquely includes Das Abendrot and Romanze. The cover is adorned with a charming 1821 watercolour depicting Schubert and friends at a summer gathering in Atzenbrugg.
All songs have been newly edited and researched based on the most current historical material available. German singing text.
It is a large book , and it includes some music with clarinet or oboe with piano,worth to buy it home !
I got it a day after order, very fast...
And the quality is very good ...
And i also buy another music, they reaches me next day , very happy with the quick buying process Anonymous

This is a really useful addition to any singers library.Recalling that Schubert wrote over 6oo songs in his short life that this is inevitably a selection but it includes many of the most well known and obviously a few less well known ones.I love the way that the editors introduce the song and give information about the texts set and also a translation which is not in the vocal line so it is easier to concentrate on the German when singing but also easy to shade the meaning in with the translation on the same page.Good .Heavy to heave around!

Excellent value for money and a really interesting and valuable selection of songs! It filled a massive hole in my accompanist repertoire at very little cost ( I will get it spiral bound though - that is the only drawback to such a bigbook! ) Anonymous
