I love this lilting, legato piece. If you are looking for approachable introduction to German and romantic music, this is a good one to start with. As the slow line requires quite a bit of breath management, my recommendation would be to use it with an older high school women’s choir (or college ensemble). My Beloved is an excellent teaching piece for phrasing, dynamics, breath management, text stress, and tone color. I am confident your women would love this piece. Rating: Medium (text and line)
