Morgenlied, D381
A tiny hymn written on the same day as a companion Abendlied (D382); both songs have an unknown (and possibly the same) author. The opening notes suggest a Papageno aria, but the piece then progresses with well-crafted decorum. The date of composition suggests the schoolroom even more than that of Täglich zu singen. The symmetry of beginning and ending a school day with a songs seems entirely likely. In February 1816 Schubert was very much still with his nose to the teacher's grindstone. It seems he wanted to leave home even at the cost of leaving Vienna: he made an unsuccessful application for a job as a school music teacher in Laibach, or Ljubljana as it is today. The thought of a Yugoslavian dimension to Schubert's story (as there was in Wolf's, who was born and brought up there) is a curious one.

from notes by Graham Johnson 1989
