La caritá, S552b
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
La Caritá is a further, simplified version of La charité, whose unpublished manuscript is marked (but not in Liszt's hand) 'harmonium' – an absurd proposal for a piece so utterly suited to the piano, and quite unplayable on the harmonium without a great deal of rewriting. The manuscript bears a quotation from the first epistle general of St. John, 4/16: 'Deus charitas est, et qui manet in charitas in Deo manet, et Deus in es' ('God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him').
