    Mahler for Choir

    Here's a gem:

    An arrangement by Clytus Gottwald for 16 part choir of a Rueckert-Lieder.

    Enjoy.............

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Thank you CD. That was beautiful not to mention uplifting. I have never taken Mahlers music seriously until now.

    Y'all are very welcome

    I sang that piece with a chamber choir when I lived in Europe back in the '80s and have loved it ever since. It certainly got me firmly into the "Mahler Camp".
