Dear Miss Kjöhler

Cd you sing any of the following Schumanns for lecture 7.1

Nuss Baum or Im Walde
or ( In meine Thränen   ) Dichterliebe 1 & 2
     (Im Wunderschönen )
---
Fruhlingsfahrt

Ich habe im Traum.    Dichterliebe 13
or Im Rhein  -              --------   6

---

or instead of all this How wd you care to do 4 songs from the Frauen-liebe?
---
Also what English songs (not folk-songs) do you know? I think I ought to illustrate questions of accent by English songs.
I enclose "Vier Ernste Gesänge" - if you cd possibly see your way to sing No 2 (  )2 (in English perhaps) it wd be very kind of you
Yrs
R. Vaughan Williams


1. Kjöhler was apparently singing extracts to illustrate lectures by VW; see also VWL4493.
2. VW has left the brackets empty; presumably he had intended to insert the title 'Ich wandte mich'.
