a choral arrangement of I am Lost to the World by Gustave Mahler: performed by the National Youth Choir of Canada

This is one of five lieder composed by Gustave Mahler to poetry by Friedrich Rückert. This particular song is called Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen (I am lost to the world). It was originally composed for orchestra and mezzo or baritone, but this is a gorgeous choral arrangement with sixteen parts. As far as I can gather from my extremely limited German, it's about an introvert who only wants to live for his songs. #choir #choral #lieder #Mahler #music #NationalYouthChoir
