Description: We have, for a change, secular choral works by this composer (the first three opus numbers' original titles specified im Freien zu singen - to be sung in the open air), which provide examples of the truest Romantic spirit: love of nature and being with (and singing with) your fellow man under canopies of spreading trees, standing on verdant meadows and hearing birds singing and ice blue streams purling past. Texts provided by some of the finest poets in the German language: Goethe, Lenau, Eichendorff, Heine, Uhland and Lenau. German-English texts. RIAS Chamber Choir; Hans-Christoph Rademann.
