These twenty-four songs, settings of poems by Wilhelm Müller, form what many consider to the greatest song cycle ever written. This manuscript actually consists of two separate documents. The first twelve songs are dated February 1827 and are a mixture of fair copies and heavily emended first versions. The remaining twelve songs, dated October 1827, are entirely in fair copy. Shortly after he completed Winterreise (Winter Journey) Schubert said to a friend that it cost him more effort than any of his other songs. "I like these songs more than all the rest," he added, "and you will come to like them as well."
