SCHUBERT'S COMPLETE SONG TEXTS - Volume 1
By Beaumont Glass

During his short but prolific life, Franz Schubert composed more than 600 songs. Half of these songs are included in Volume I and the other half are included in Volume II. The songs are presented alphabetically by title. Volume I begins with Abend and ends with Frühlingslied. The reason Volume I only makes it into the F's is because all the songs beginning with Die, Der or Das are listed with those spellings, occupying an inordinate number of D words.

SCHUBERT'S COMPLETE SONG TEXTS - Volume 2
By Beaumont Glass

Volume II begins with Frühlingslied/Geöffnet sind des Winters Riegel and ends with Zur Namensfeier des Herrn Andreas Siller. Song cycles are presented alphabetically, as a unit. Therefore Die schöne Müllerin appears in Volume I and Winterreise appears in Volume II, as it does not begin with a D word.

THIRTY SONGS OF WILHELM STENHAMMAR
Edited by Annette Johansson

The compositions of Swedish composer Wilhelm Stenhammar (1871-1927) have recently begun to capture broad international interest. Outside of Sweden, the excellence of Stenhammar's output has always been obscured by the long-recognized works of the eminent Nordic composers Edward Grieg, Jan Sibelius, and Carl Nielsen. However, since the mid-80s, there has been a marked increase in performances of his works, and recordings are available worldwide. This volume contains not only the word-for-word translations, the IPA transcriptions, and commentary about the composer and the poets; it conatains the actual music of all thirty songs.
