Like many of Schubert´s songs, op.118 was published posthumously: Joseph Czerny published the piano version in 1829 with the plate number 341, and the guitar version was published ca.1830, with the plate number 703. Schubert´s relationship with the guitar has already been analyzed, but it is difficult to arrive at a definite conclusion. What seems true is the fact that guitar accompaniment was a common practice in Biedermeier Vienna, and it is hard to believe that Schubert did not approve it.

This new edition is based on a copy of the above-mentioned edition, housed in the British Library, published by Joseph Czerny with the following title: “Sechs Gedichte mit Begleitung der Guitare 118tes Werk”.
