This classic lied has been arranged tastefully for 2-part voices, with the accompaniment being nearly original. The text is printed in both German and English. This piece is a good choice because it integrates several modes of interaction between the two voices. The two voices are paired in thirds with parallel rhythms, then separated, introducing a counter-melody, with unison phrases in the middle section.
