Recycle this thread, and homage to those Wagner sopranos:
I'd appreciate if you say the composers and the ISBN. DankeI would also recommend purchasing this fantastic 3CD set on the Harmonia Mundi label:
Features selections from various song cycles as well as individual songs by various 19th century to early 20th century composers.

On this illiterate side of the pond, and probably having easily caved in to the Hegemony of the German Music Cartel of the time, Lieder is used generally for "art song." Most of the population doesn't have a clue it is plural, either.Please note that lieder are GERMAN art songs only.
OK, not classical at all.Also, French composer Reynaldo Hahn has some fine songs, although they may be too sugary and poppish at times, I'm not sure if it is even classical music after all.
Ackkkk! Where do we find these blasphemers!?!
Oh really, well your post says "Oh,not classical at all then,where do we put Josef Marx then ?". That to me means that you have accepted that Hahn is NOT classical.Thank you, and give my regards to Mrs. Obvious.
Anyway, Joseph Marx is worth checking out, especially Das Verklaerte Jahr (or Verklaertes Jahr?), probably his stylistically most advanced composition.
And let's not forget this great 'schlager' of his.
I have never come across this and I was in the USA for six months of the year on business with many musical friends---how confusing for all.On this illiterate side of the pond, and probably having easily caved in to the Hegemony of the German Music Cartel of the time, Lieder is used generally for "art song." Most of the population doesn't have a clue it is plural, either.
In Britain, its a Song.
In France, its a Chanson.
In Italy, its a Canzone etc.
Classical, the classical era / classical, all classical eras -- God help you if you want the general term and are starting a sentece with the word
