The LiederNet Archive (formerly The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive) is a donation-supported web archive of art song and choral texts[1] founded in 1995[2] by Emily Ezust, an American/Canadian computer programmer and amateur violinist. The website was hosted by the REC Music Foundation from 1996 to 2015.

The LiederNet Archive provides access[3] to both original out-of-copyright song texts and copyright-protected translations submitted by over 500 volunteer[4] translators.[5] The website is indexed by composer, text poet or author, first line, title, or language; and it allows you to do words or phrases searches. It is frequently cited as a source in musical studies, where the website's aggregate listings of settings of songs and poems may be more complete or more easily accessible than conventional musicological resources.[6]
