    From "Fünf Lieder nach Texten von Friedrich Rückert," arranged for 12-part mixed choir a cappella.

    Liebst du um Schönheit was meant specifically for Alma Mahler. It is almost a justification of their relationship ‘in spite of' the age gap, the problem of which Mahler was well aware of. It is probably not a coincidence that Mahler did not orchestrate the song – in other words did not ‘intend it for the public' (Alma even protested – in vain – against Puttmann's orchestral version).
