This CD - three lieder cycles - comes without a printed text of the poems! If you don't have the text, Pregardien may as well be whistling as singing. There is nothing in German, as well as the absence of an English translation. I've been trying to hunt down translations - poem by poem - but have thus far not been very successful. And thus far Col Legno has ignored my request for any source for the text in translation.

Does anyone know where the translated text for these lieder may be found?
