I archived my choices in a blog post here, with a few sneaky 'bubbling under' inclusions bringing the playlist up to 10.
This year, we all pitched in for a second round. I still tried to keep to my arbitrary rules (essentially: choose a different composer every day, to avoid just posting Schubert). But even without my trying or consciously thinking about it, I drifted towards a few more selections away from the usual voice/piano template - so this time round, there's two guitars, two orchestras, and a lute.
As before, here are my choices saved for posterity - along with another three extra songs for added value! I hope you enjoy them.
Ireland: 'Sea Fever', performed by Roderick Williams and Julius Drake.
Britten: 'The Big Chariot', performed by Ian Bostridge and Xuefei Wang.
Hahn: 'Néère', performed by Véronique Gens and Susan Manoff.
Schubert: 'Nachtstück', performed by Christoph Prégardien and Tilman Hoppstock.
Cara: 'Fugga pur chi vol amore', performed by Carolyn Sampson and Robert Meunier.
Glass: 'Evening Song', performed by Douglas Parry (from 'Satyagraha').
Adams: 'Batter my heart', performed by Gerald Finley (from 'Doctor Atomic').
Schubert: 'Suleika I', performed by Gundula Janowitz and Irwin Gage.
Chausson: 'L'albatros', performed by Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Daniel Blumenthal.
Simon & Garfunkel: 'For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her'. (This feels to me as much an 'art song' as a pop or folk number. I think it's because it travels exactly where it needs to.)
