Auf Flügeln des Gesanges (On Wings of Song) from Lyrisches Intermezzo of 1823 by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) tells of melody's power to transport lovers to the most beautiful night garden, with bright and fragrant flowers, gazelles, a murmuring stream, and a palm tree, under which they can dream. It is well known in the setting by Mendelssohn, written in 1834.

Seit Ich Ihn Gesehen (Since I First Saw Him) is from Adelbert von Chamisso's set of poems Frauen-Liebe und Leben, most famously set by Schumann in 1840. A young girl cries that she has been blinded by the vision of a gentleman who has unknowingly lifted her from darkness. Overwhelmed by the new emotions of adoration and infatuation, she retreats into isolation.

        Deal GB Nothing.
        Need a change from, or a companion piece for, Schubert's Shepherd on the Rock? Here's the answer, with these songs by his best mate. They hardly pale in comparison, containing delectable melodies, including several earworms. There is no need to be put off by the fact that the composer's name is unfamiliar.
        There is nothing to dislike.
