Misc. Comments

The song as it stands in its original form is a fragment. It has been completed by Eusebius Mandyczewski (1857-1929) and by Reinhard van Hoorickx (1918-1997), who composed performing versions for many of Schubert's unfinished songs. Mandyczewski's completion has been recorded by Lucia Popp and Graham Johnson for the Hyperion label.
