Alternate title from Rothmund, "(2004)
Grimmige Gruft, judging from the notes to the Carus recording, is the text incipit to the piece, whose title is Kläglicher Abschied or Trauerode, which was composed for the death in 7 December 1622 of Countess Sophie, composed/completed/ready by January 1623 (but perhaps not necessarily published then??).
Funeral was 28 January 1623, andsuggests that perhaps it or at least the work's libretto was published in time for the funeral in 1623, while the music may have been published in 1922 - ?
Recorded on Carus 83.238, 2011 (under name Kläglicher Abschied.)
