Programme Notes: 

The prefatory note consists of a one-page essay on song composers. Although absent from the programme, Schubert is singled out as the 'model song-composer', while Hugo Wolf and Richard Strauss are described as 'the most important of the modern song composers' (p.3). Of Max Reger and Claude Debussy, Niecks writes, '[they] had better be left to be judged by the next generation'. The words of the songs are printed on pp.6-11.
