The Fair Maid of the Mill (D795 (Op. 25))


Stop!

As you led me through the forest
As I followed my stream
A mill bathed in sunlight
Appeared like a dream
Appeared like a dream
Here’s the mighty millwheel turning
here’s a song that I know
full of longing, full of yearning
There’s a song that I know.
But the house feels so lonely
Full of weeping and woe.
Yet it’s bathed in golden sunlight
So bright and so clear
Its bathed in golden sunlight
So bright and so clear
Is this where I am bound for?
Were you leading me here?
Is this where I am bound for?
Were you leading me here?
Were you leading me here?
Were you leading me here?

Composer

Franz Peter Schubert was an late Classical and early Romantic composer. He produced a vast oeuvre during his short life, composing more the 600 vocal works (largely Lieder), and well as several symphonies, operas, and a large body of piano music. He was uncommonly gifted from a young age, but appreciation of his music was limited during his lifetime. His work became more popular in the decades after his death, and was praised by 19th century composers, including Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Liszt.
