    Post Most beautiful art songs

    What do you consider the most beautiful art songs ever written? Post lyrics as well if you can...

    My two top nominations (in this order):

    Silent Noon (Ralph Vaughn Williams) - I sang this back in my music school days & fell in love with this song-- a perfect melding of Rosetti's beautiful poem with music. Brings tears to my eyes every time, especially at the line "Oh clasp to our hearts, for deathless dower..."

    Nacht und Traume (Franz Schubert) - I sang this one many times before as well, though I just didn't have the lungs for it. When sung at a proper s l o w tempo, it is gorgeous...

    Dear Foth,

    My personal favorite is "Morgen" by R. Strauss
