Misc. Comments

This work was originally issued with Du gleichst dem klaren blauen See (which had already been published as No.1 in Disteln und Dornen, Op.33(34)) as the first song. Lang had mistakenly sent the wrong song to the publisher who then required her to pay the cost of issuing a corrected edition with Sonnenblicke as No.1. Therefore, it is possible that some copies survive with the incorrect first song.
