The romantic partnering of music and text will surely spike your choir’s interest in German lieder when they sing this delightful arrangement of Schubert’s Lebenslust. I do strongly recommend that the piece be performed in German, though there is an optional English text. The students will have fun exploring all of the different sounds and textures that the language has to offer. If you have a boy’s section with a very limited range, this piece will work well. Boy’s range: F – d. Enjoy!
