This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

First published in 1970 as D.216, which at that time included both settings of the text. However, the 1978 revised version of the Deutsch Catalogue, as well as the more current information listed in the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe website, both identify the song under its revised Deutsch number, D.215a. This is the 1st setting of the text; D.216 is the 2nd setting.
