Art songs are more-or-less the English equivalent of German Lieder. More accurately, the term perhaps is best used to describe specifically songs set to English poetry of reasonably high literary aspirations, most notably during the nineteenth century. Typically, Art songs are arranged for a single singer and piano. Sometimes they are gathered together (or composed) as a "song cycle" — a series of songs (generally three or more) tied by a single narrative or theme.
