Schubert's setting of words from Goethe's "Wilhelm Meister" (with my singing translation in English) transposed to the key of E minorfor low voice and guitar.In some places the guitar part is simplified in comparison to the original piano partin order to improve the flowing quality and to make it possible for one person to accompany herself/himself on the guitar.A version for low voice and piano, also in E minor, is also availableThe sound sample is an electronic preview.The three individual songs ("Wer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt", "Wer nie sein Brot mit Tränen ass", "An die Türen") and also all three together (under the title "Gesänge des Harfners (songs of the harpist)" ) are available on this siteThe pdf file contains the score and also the separate parts.(This song takes just the first two stanzas of Goethe's poem "Lied des Harfners")Wer nie sein Brot mit Tränen ass,wer nie die kummervollen Nächteauf seinem Bette weinend sass,der kennt euch nicht, ihr himmlischen Mächte.Ihr führt ins Leben uns hinein,ihr lasst den Armen schuldig werden,dann überlasst ihr ihn der Pein;denn alle Schuld rächt sich auf Erden.Who never ate his bread with tearsWho never sits by night and cowersUpon his bed in sobbing fearsHe does not know you, heavenly powersYou lead us into life's domainYou let the poor suffer debt and dearthThen leave him to deal with painfor ev'ry guilt's avenged here on earth(English translation (c) 2015 David Warin Solomons)
