Six songs from Jucunde (Op. 23)

This is a day that may sound

Hermann Rollett

This is a day that may sound -
The quail beats in the grain,
The lark cheers with joy
Probably over the bright green Hag,
The hunter blows the horn.
Mrs. Nightingale calls sweet sound,
A whisper blows through the leaves
The echo resounds in the echo,
It sounds and sings everywhere
This is a spring song.

This is a day of sound rejoicing

English Translation © Richard Stokes

This is a day of sound rejoicing -
The quail sings in the corn,
The lark rejoices in song
Over the bright green hedge,
The hunter winds his horn.
Mistress Nightingale calls so sweetly
A whisper can be heard through the foliage,
Everywhere - sound and song.
That is a true spring song.
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)

Clara Schumann, née Clara Josephine Wieck, was a German musician and composer, consider by many to be one of the most disguished composers of the Romantic era. She composed a large body of work, including various piano concertos, chamber works, and choral pieces. She was married to Robert Schumann, and maintained a close relationship with Johannes Brahms.
