Sängers Morgenlied, D165

First line:
Süsses Licht! Aus goldnen Pforten
composer
published in 1872
author of text

 
Only two days after composing the first version of this poem, Schubert returned to the text with new ideas. Perhaps what he had taken to be a paean of joy was in fact meant to be a prayer? As in the two Fischerlied settings the second version is not just a reworking of similar material, it is a totally different song. The singer of this spacious aubade is no cheery energetic youth but rather a priest of Apollo, or one of Norma's druid colleagues spinning a vocal line of Bellini-like suppleness. C major is Schubert's key of clear morning skies; Morgengruss from Die schöne Müllerin had its beginnings here. We choose verses 1, 5 and 6 as being appropriate to this music, and so that the whole of Körner's poem is heard between the two versions.
