Melodie in Dorische Tonart, S701d
? circa 1860

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The oft-cited Melodie in Dorische Tonart consists simply of the two themes from Totentanz which come from a version of the burial service; the chants also appear in open score on a leaf at the Goethe-Schiller Archive marked 'Prose des morts' (no musical connection with the piece to which we have given that title in the first cycle of Harmonies poétiques).
