Found this somewhere online in .tif format and decided to convert it to .pdf for everybody's convenience. A number of the early opuses have already appeared on IMSLP (though some of the ones on there are incomplete sets), but volume 2 has some lesser-known works (including a handful of socialist realist patriotic songs about pilots, polar explorers, and Lenin)

...and here's a collection of romances by Vissarion Shebalin, who studied under Myaskovsky and Gliere, was friends with Shostakovich, and taught numerous important late-Soviet-era composers such as Edison Denisov, Grigory Frid, and Karen Khachaturyan.

We've previously seen a volume of vocal works by Shebalin that were taken from his stage and film works. That can be accessed at:

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=958&p=29639&hilit=shebalin#p29639

This volume is devoted to art song. I'm not sure why the editors chose to jump around chronologically, but I retained the order that is used in the book. Note that there's also an errata page at the end.

Vissarion Yakovlevich SHEBALIN
Romances and Songs, for voice and piano (pub. 1970)

Contents:
w/o op. - 'There is a spell in autumn early...' (words by F. Tyutchev) (1921)

w/o op. - The Wonderful City (words by E. Baratynsky) (1922)
w/o op. - 'Still I love...' (words by A. Fet) (1922)
op. 23 - Selections (5) from the cycle 'Twelve Poems of A. Pushkin' (1935)
op. 48 - Selections (4) from the cycle 'Six Romances on words of M. Lermontov' (1952)
op. 40 - Selections (5) from the cycle 'Seven Songs on words of A. Kovalenkov' (1948)

op. 55 - In the Land of Mordovia, romances (3) on words by A. Prokofiev (1961)

This song-cycle was included on the second of Alexander Tutunov's excellent Abeliovich recordings for Altarus (on the disc which also includes the piano concerto and piano trio). This is one of numerous settings of poems by nineteenth-century Russian poet Fyodor Tyutchev from the Soviet era. Previously-seen volumes include Yefim Adler's ( viewtopic.php?f=19&t=958&p=29600&hilit=yefim+adler#p29600 ) and Yevgeny Golubev's ( viewtopic.php?f=19&t=958&p=30918&hilit=tyutchev#p30918 ).

Lev Moiseyevich ABELIOVICH (Belarus)
Romances (10) on poems by F. Tyutchev, for bass and piano (pub. 1985); 1. After the Storm, 2. Look how the grove turns green, 3. Child, 4. Autumn, 5. No matter how hard the last hour, 6. In the sky, the clouds are melting, 7. On my way, 8. Chorale, 9. Poetry, 10. Happy is he who has visited this world

Here is a book of romances and songs by a composer most well-known on this forum for the modernist (i.e. Scriabin-inspired, later jazz- and Les-Six-inspired) piano pieces he wrote in the 1920s. His later output, which shifted towards writing symphonies (nine between 1929 and 1944) and string quartets (three or four in the 1940s), conformed to the demands of socialist realism. I'm not sure where any of this vocal music fall in his oeuvre.

Leonid Alexeyevich POLOVINKIN
Selected Romances and Songs, for voice and piano (pub. 1977); 1. Over the stream (words by K. Balmont), 2. Sleepless eyes, unclosing... (words by. A. Golenishchev-Kutuzov), 3. It will only get a little duller... (words by A. Fet), 4. Do not forget (words by A. Kovalenkov), 5. I met you (words by M. Levashov), 6. Moonlight flooded the village (words by M. Levashov), 7. Would you, sister... (words by I. Utkin), 8. Everlasting (words by A. Sofronov), 9. In the twentieth year (words by V. Lebedyev-Kumach), 10. Simple words (words by V. Lebedyev-Kumach)

I originally didn't plan on posting this volume, having assumed that the elder Tcherepnin's works would be well-represented on IMSLP. Alas, most of these romances are not amongst the ones available on that site. If anybody here wants to pass them (or any other appropriate things from my above posts) on to that site, I encourage it.

The IMSLP works list is very thorough, but does not include all of the dates. My assumption is that these are all works that Tcherepnin penned between 1898 and 1921, before he moved from Georgia to live in western Europe for the rest of his life.
