Schumann has received some highly deserved attention in recent years. The Singer's Schumann, ed. and tr. by Thilo Reinhard (1989), supplied excellent translations and pronunciation guides for almost one hundred of the songs, along with useful historical and performance suggestions. Richard Miller's outstanding Singing Schumann (CH, Jun'00) convinced students and teachers to look beyond the most commonly performed songs to the whole body of the composer's song output. With this addition to his series of IPA transcriptions and translations of lieder, translator and commentator Beaumont Glass makes it easier to follow Miller's exhortation by including all of the completed Schumann songs, including those not published in the composer's lifetime. Glass includes translations and transcriptions of Schumann's charming vocal duets, trios, and quartets. Like Glass's other volumes, this work is meticulously completed and includes observations and some historical notes. Glass is close to the end of this sequence of books dedicated to the most outstanding composers of 19th-century lieder. The complete songs of Richard Strauss will follow soon. Appropriate for all libraries collecting the literature of song. M. S. Roy Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus
