Overview

As the nineteenth century progressed, there was an unprecedented flowering of the partsong in Germany, inspired by the development of the rich repertory of German Romantic poetry in the hands of Goethe, R;uckert, Heine, and others. This new collection presents forty of the best examples of this intimate genre. Starting with Schubert and ending with early Schoenberg, the book includes pieces by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Bruckner, Schumann, Wolf, and Cornelius. Some items are previously unpublished, others have never been widely available. All appear with idiomatic English singing versions supplemented by literal prose translations, and the majority are in short score format for the convenience of rehearsal accompanists.
