Karoline Unger retired from the stage in 1843 when she married the French scholar François Sabatier. Her book of songs in autograph, prefaced by a dedicatory poem by Franz Schober in his own hand, contains a number of French romances, but also lieder in her native language. Her career as a composer, such as it was, dates from the years of her marriage and her residence in France.
