THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH Lewis
IN his earlier days especially, Schubert chose the poems for his songs without any very great regard for their worth or beauty; but in the songs which belong to his last years, the poems are almost always worthy of his music, such as might well inspire those melodies; one feels, indeed, that the songs must have been definitely inspired by the poems, not, as is sometimes the case with his more youthful work, that almost any good going verse might start him off on an equally good going tune.
This setting of a Shakespeare lyric is of itself so beautiful a melody as to be popular in all sorts of arrangements.
