Renowned countertenor Iestyn Davies and pianist Joseph Middleton perform Schubert's tragic song-cycle Die schöne Müllerin (The Beautiful Maid of the Mill). Adapting poetry by Wilhelm Müller, the song cycle, D. 795, marks the beginning of the end of Schubert's life.

Released under the house label of St John's College, Cambridge, this recording acts as a celebration of Iestyn Davies's formative period at the college; beginning there as a 7-year-old probationer in 1987, he progressed to become Head Chorister, ultimately returning to study as a choral scholar. Alongside full texts and translations, the booklet includes a background on the work by noted Lieder expert Susan Youens, as well as reflections on Iestyn's time at St John's from the College's past and present Directors of Music – Christopher Robinson and Andrew Nethsingha.
