    That is a great one. Personally, with as much as I like Mahler's Lieder, Schubert is just a bit better. I love the Erlkönig.

    Faure's Le Secret. Achingly beautiful and innocent. It was like time frozen.



    P/S: The best rendition of this melodie was by Irene Joachim, the iconic Melisande. It is not available on Youtube. I think I will try to upload it soon.

    Right now it is the English folk song "Down by the Salley Gardens" as arranged by Benjamin Britten and performed by Andreas Scholl. Can't wait to hear it live next year.

    It's lovely. I googled and heard Andreas Scholl singing another Irish song to a traditional air - "She Moved through the Fair" (we sang it at school, but unaccompanied, which makes it sound even spookier). Have you heard it?

    ^ Now I have, thank you. It is haunting and lovely. Andreas Scholl is coming to Hamburg with an entire program of British art songs and traditional tunes ("Greensleeves" too!), but this one is unfortunately not on the list.

    If we're talking song cycles, like many others I have to cite Schubert's Winterreise and Die Schone Mullerin, Schuman's Dichterliebe and Mahler's Das lied von der Erde, as many have here. But I'd also add Berlioz' Les nuits d'ete and Ravel's Scheherazade and Chansons Madecasses.
