This is not an ideal edition to sing from, though the music is perfectly legible. Neat, though, to see the original edition. I have access to the complete Schubert, and can post a better edition of any of these songs with enough warning.

Song posts will be created as time and discretion allow. If you would like me to give priority to a song that is not yet posted, please let me know via the contact page.
