Schubert Lieder (Coste/Jeffery)

This new book presents a group of songs by Schubert whose piano accompaniments were arranged for guitar by NapolÒ©on Coste, probably in about the 1830s, that is to say very soon after Schubert's time. Coste's guitar accompaniments are quite good and will be a valuable addition to the repertory for voice and guitar. At the time Coste was a student of Sor in Paris, and quite possibly these limpid and uncomplicated accompaniments may show Sor's influence. They have not previously been published in a new re-engraved edition in our own time, as far as I know. Coste wrote his guitar accompaniment to French texts and it should be clearly understood that in this edition we have newly underlaid the original German text to his guitar accompaniments, for the convenience of those performers who may wish to sing these songs with the guitar with the original German text. The songs are: 1. Gretchen am Spinnrade 2. Der Tod und das MÒ¤dchen 3. StÒ¤ndchen (Leise flehen) 4. Sei mir gegrÒ¼sst 5. Das FischermÒ¤dchen 6. Schlummerlied 7. Des MÒ¤dchens Klage 8. Das Wandern 9. Wiegenlied (Schlafe, schlafe) 10. StÒ¤ndchen (Horch, horch, die Lerch) 11. Adieu 12. Auf dem Wasser zu singen 13. Ave Maria
