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


Mine!

Millstream stop your rushing sound
Millwheels stop careering round
Can't you hear the heavens resound
All around
With the joy that I have found?
With the joy that I have found?
Let the stars
Whirl and shine
Whizz and fizz like sparkling wine
Let the heav’ns
Intertwine
Let the sun and moon combine
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
Mine, all mine…
Sunshine
Can't you glow a bit more fervently?
Springtime
Are those all the flowers you own?
Sun and moon and stars above
Can't you simply explode with love?
Must I be forced to sing her praises all alone?
Must I be forced to sing her praises all alone?
Millstream stop your rushing sound
Millwheels stop careering round
Can't you hear the heavens resound
All around
With the joy that I have found?
With the joy that I have found?
Let the stars
Whirl and shine
Whizz and fizz like sparkling wine
Let the heav’ns
Intertwine
Let the sun and moon combine
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
Mine, all mine…

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.
