This new book presents a group of songs by Schubert whose piano accompaniments were arranged for guitar by Napoléon Coste, probably in about the 1830s, that is to say very soon after Schubert's time. Coste's guitar accompaniments are quite good and will be a valuable addition to the repertory for voice and guitar. At the time Coste was a student of Sor in Paris, and quite possibly these limpid and uncomplicated accompaniments may show Sor's influence.

Coste wrote his guitar accompaniment to French texts and it should be clearly understood that in this edition the original German text have been newly underlaid to his guitar accompaniments, for the convenience of those performers who may wish to sing these songs with the guitar with the original German text.
