A major new edition, newly researched, with new music engravings, historical notes on each song, a poet index and line by line translations for study. Unlike other Schubert editions, the complete cycles Die Winterreise and Die schöne Müllerin are not included, since in their entirety they are not useful to most singers. (Schwanengesang is included in its entirety.) This leaves room for many more wonderful individual songs. In the introductory notes for each song you will find information about the song's composition, its 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 watercolor depicting Schubert and friends at a summer gathering in Atzenbrugg.
