Misc. Comments

The published version in 1902/1903 contained minor revisions by Eugen Thomas. A copy of the choruses was found among the papers of Arnold Mendelssohn, and a description the variants is published in The Music Review, 1941. This version, however shows an earlier version of the choruses, and Wolf's letters indicate he considered publishing the works in 1892 and 1894. It is likely he revised the works around this time, becoming the basis for the published copy.

Eugen Thomas conducted the chorus "Ergebung" at Wolf's funeral in 1903. The popularity of Wolf's works upon his death spurred interest in these choruses' publication. Wolf had been seriously ill since 1899 and unlikely to assist in the preparation of the first edition; therefore, Thomas's revisions should not be readily dismissed. Thomas was a well-regarded choral conductor, and the revisions clean a few spots of awkward choral voice-leading. The only arguable variation from Wolf's score is the removal of an low b for the basses at the end of Ergebung – outside the range of most choruses, and understandably excised by Thomas for practical reasons.
