Misc. Comments

The work was first published by the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe in 1974 as D.425. With the 1978 revision of the Deutsch Catalogue, the composition titled "Lebenslied" that had been originally assigned to D.425, was in fact determined to be lost. Consequently, the work previously identified as D.425 was then reassigned to D.Anh.I/23. Given its fragmentary state (only the Tenor II part is extant), it is uncertain whether it was conceived as a trio for male voices (2 tenors, bass), or a quartet for male voices (2 tenors, 2 basses). Tagged as both for now.
