External Links The Lied, Art Song, and Choral Texts Archive (does not give opus number ; this has been suggested by checking HMB. It is possible that Hölzel composed two works with this opus number, though the nearness of date of publication suggests that this is the right one, as US publication of an "edition"/translation did often follow close on the appearance of a publication (not necessarily first) of a work in Europe.)
RISM 653001122 (ms. copy, made in 1905, of a 1882-published 2-zither arrangement by Lerche, Franziskanerkloster, Provinzarchiv, Schwaz. Describes song as Romanze)

Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1877), p.361. The Alois Rudolf Lerche Streich-Zither (or 2) arrangement was published in 1882: Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1882), p.382 so the work had acquired the subtitle Romanze during the composer’s lifetime. - Schissel
