  2. Know'st thou the land, where citrons sweetly bloom
  3. Of thee I dream
  4. Fare thee well, thou true and loving hearted!
  5. O'er the purple-crested mountain
  6. On the cliffs or in caves
  7. Lark! that singst, while heav'nward soaring
  8. Oh! Feather'd songsters, blithely singing
  9. The hawthorn is blooming, the meadows are green
  10. Wake thy lute, oh! gentle Lady
  11. O'er my spirit, this scene a calm is throwing
  12. Through lands far and foreign
  13. Sweet Hope! thy light to my sad heart be lending
  14. For my Love, a Chaplet twining
  15. Ah! 'tis the shrill-sounding cry of the Quail

Text mostly rewritten by George Linley to music by Beethoven. Still looking for the original basis of Song #4 "The Farewell."
