Evidence is dated 1910, but here again Ives had substituted his own words to what was a much earlier setting (about 1898) of the poem ‘Wie Melodien zieht es mir’ by Klaus Groth (also set by Brahms, in his Op 105). In this lyric landscape, the onset of night is symbolized in the voice’s drooping, descending phrases.
