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.
