author of text

These four delightful little pieces for female voices form a self-contained group within Brahms’s set of twelve Lieder und Romanzen, Op 44. They were early works written in Hamburg around 1860, at which time Brahms was conducting a women’s chorus he had founded. He later revised and published some of the music he wrote for this choir as his Op 44.
