 I love this website, and I use it a lot! I'm a huge fan of Schubert Lieder and it's a great source
 of translations into various languages. But what has happened to the "browse" function? I find I
 can't browse by title or first line any more.

 A million thanks for maintaining this site!  As an amateur singer and music lover, it is so
 wonderful being able to search for lyrics for Lieder in so many different ways.  Thank you!

 To Justin: why do you assume something is trite if you don't know it?

 I am a singer and I haven't heard of most of these composers you list under the words to the
 songs. Is this website supposed to be for singers or for researchers into trite music rightfully
 forgotten? With all respect, if its for singers maybe you shouldn't make it so cluttered. The
 translations are sometimes hard to see too, you need to scroll right. And maybe you could make the
 page look a little nicer, its just too busy right now. Wonderful to have this resource, don't get
 me wrong, but you're turning off your audience.

 "Part of being social is supporting each other."
 So true, Llamar. I'd love to read your thesis. One thing is for certain: art inspires more art. I
 will look for that drawing.

 I am the editor of the Speaks Family Association Bulletin published quarterly.  I would love to
 hear more about Oley Speaks. 
 Email me at [email protected] . I know  we have published information about Oley Speaks in
 the past but not recently.

 Can Art be legislated?
 It is not fair what is going on and we need answers from Washington. But I see in front of me and
 where we are in this world that I am part of 99.8 percent.
 I was inspired by "a nice drawing of Abraham Lincoln reading the paper" and began my thesis on a
 Wednesday. By the following Monday, it was completed.
 Part of being social is supporting each other.

 What a generous initiative to put these texts up! Taking your translation as a basis, I've tweaked
 the text of "Des Baches Wiegenlied"/"The Brook's Lullaby" and came up with the variant below (in
 case it's of any interest!).
 All the very best,
 Rest well, rest well!
 Close your eyes!
 Wanderer, weary one, you are home.
 Here faith is kept,
 You shall lie with me
 Until the sea has drunk the brooklets dry.
 I shall lay you down, cool,
 Upon a soft bed
 In the blue crystal chamber,
 Come, come,
 Whatever can lull,
 Wave and lull my lad to sleep!
 When a hunting-horn sounds
 From the green forest,
 I shall roar and rush around you.
 Do not look in,
 Little blue flowers!
 You make my sleeper's dreams so troubled.
 Away, away
 From the mill-path,
 Away, away,
 Hateful girl!
 That your shadow may not wake him.
 Throw in to me
 Your fine handkerchief,
 That I may cover his eyes with it!
 Good night, good night,
 Until all awake,
 Sleep away your joys, sleep away your sorrow!
 The full moon rises,
 The mist fades away,
 and the heavens above, how wide they are!

 it's hard to find your composer in these crazy long lists of nobodies nobody cares about anymore.
 Can you at least make it BOLD or something so I can find schubert?
