Throughout his life Brahms harmonized and arranged German folk songs for mixed choir. In these masterful versions the elegant simplicity of the originals always maintained, yet Brahms weaves well-shaped vocal lines and adds delicate harmonies to make polished songs of great charm. In this edition, John Lewers has fashioned highly effective and poetic English singing translations, which adhere to the rhyming scheme of the original. The result is a collection of instantly accessible yet little known repertoire, exploring a variety of scenes and moods, which will appeal to all mixed-voice choirs looking for imaginative concert repertoire. German and English text.
