Excerpt from Masters of Russian Song, Vol. 1 of 2: Twenty-Five Songs by Moussórgsky

Probably no layman can imagine the difficulty of translating these strange and powerful musical incarnations into poetici or even adequate English. This, then, being the first time that these song-cycles are given in English versions, no effort was spared by my col laborators and myself to render them as perfectly as possible; many a poem in this volume has been translated four or five times, before one compound version was deemed acceptable.
