The song as it stands in its original form is a fragment. It has been completed by Reinhard van Hoorickx (1918-1997), who composed performing versions for many of Schubert's unfinished songs. Hoorickx's completion has yet to be recorded commercially. The song has also been completed by Mark Brown (b. 1941), whose completion has been recorded by Martyn Hill and Graham Johnson for the Hyperion label.
