This choral composition by Beethoven is for string quartet and chorus. Composed in 1814, it is dedicated to Baron Johann Baptist von Pasqualati to commemorate the third anniversary of the death of Pasqualati’s wife. This seldom-performed work by Beethoven is one of his least known compositions, but well worth your study. There is a piano accompaniment (for rehearsal only) and the string parts are available from the publisher.
