Ich will dir singen ein Hohelied

author of text

Rudi Stephan (1887-1915) was born in Worms, but left to study in Frankfurt, and then Munich. He is considered a leading composer among his generation despite only leaving a small output of works. Influenced by contemporaries such as Stravinsky, Scriabin and Debussy, Stephan developed his own individual voice. He was killed by a bullet to the brain fired by a Russian sniper on the Galician Front, now in modern Ukraine.

Gerda von Robertus (1872-1939) was the pseudonym of Gertrud von Schlieben. As her father was on the Federal Council she moved in high diplomatic social circles, even being formally introduced to the Berlin Court. Upon his death Gertrud could finally forsake the social life and devote herself to literary work. She first published her poems in 1906.
