A marvellous early work of Wilhelm Fitzenhagen with rich romantic harmonies. It was originally written for cello with organ or harmonium (or also piano), but the composer also orchestrated it for small orchestra (principally of woodwind instruments). It was first published by Breitkopf & Härtel in 1872. Fitzenhagen probably intended it for performance in Church, as revealed in its sub-title “‘A Sacred Song Without Words”. He indeed performed the work himself.

Johnstone’s presentation retains all the beautiful textures. All parts have real harmonic interest. It is best performed by either 5 solo cellists, or by one soloist in Cello 1 accompanied by an ensemble or orchestra of cellos. The duration is less than 5 minutes.
