Album-Leaf 'Agnus Dei of the Missa solemnis', S167c
? 1860s; Poco adagio aus der Graner Messe, Agnus Dei from the Missa Solemnis, S9

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Poco adagio aus der Graner Messe is an excerpt from the Agnus Dei of the composer's Missa Solemnis, S9; the second Album-Leaf presents a strangely misquoted version of the principal theme from the symphonic poem Orpheus; and the third, although marked in the manuscript as an excerpt from the symphonic poem Die Ideale, is actually laid out in a way which more closely resembles the trio section of the Künstlerfestzug, whence the theme in question derives.
