'This is an archive of glorious Lieder singing as much as it is a definitive treasury of the greatest Lieder ever composed. Those who have collected the discs as they appeared individually need not worry that they are missing anything, but anyone else with the remotest interest in Schubert's songs shouldn't hesitate any longer' (The Guardian)
