This edition supersedes the Nova Music publication of 1982 (NM249) edited by Georgina Dobrée which is now out of print. This edition is fully re-edited and includes the option of a second clarinet in place of the voice.

Auf Flügeln des Gesanges (On Wings of Song) from Lyrisches Intermezzo of 1823 by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856) tells of melody's power to transport lovers to the most beautiful night garden, with bright and fragrant flowers, gazelles, a murmuring stream, and a palm tree, under which they can dream. It is well known in the setting by Mendelssohn, written in 1834.

Seit Ich Ihn Gesehen (Since I First Saw Him) is from Adelbert von Chamisso's set of poems Frauen-Liebe und Leben, most famously set by Schumann in 1840. A young girl cries that she has been blinded by the vision of a gentleman who has unknowingly lifted her from darkness. Overwhelmed by the new emotions of adoration and infatuation, she retreats into isolation.
