Dedicated by the publisher posthumously to Julius Stockhausen. May have existed in 2 versions, one of 1815 and one of 1816, according to Deutsch p.114, but the 2nd version is lost. (D.793, a second setting of the text much praised @ Johnson (The Schubert Song Companion) pp.75-76 (partially quoting/referring to Alfred Einstein), is not what is being referred to here!)
