Verdankt sei es dem Glanz der Großen, K392

K340a in sixth edition of catalogue
author of text

Mozart composed these three songs between August 1781 and May 1782. The texts are all interpolations from the popular sentimental novel Sophiens Reise von Memel nach Sachsen by Johann Timotheus Hermes. In Verdankt sei es dem Glanz der Großen the relationship between heavenly and earthly beings, between modesty and self awareness, is treated with complete assurance; there is no shame in being small and insignificant in the Universe.
