Many of these songs were dedicated to the women in Mendelssohn's life and reflect the sunniest qualities of his melodiousness, spontaneity and invention. Maurice Hinson has skillfully researched and edited these works back to their original form and provides a very informative introduction, which includes many detailed suggestions for a stylistic interpretation and performance, as well as biographical information on the composer's life.

    This edition is very readable. The notes are probably the most clear of any edition I've seen. This collection is filled with songs of various moods, including some perfect for wedding preludes and receptions.
