Misc. Notes:

Can't tell without some German-language copy of the original whether Cragin's text is a close or free translation. (Es is so still die Maiennacht / The lovely night is calm and still are the two contrasting first lines, so not the same exactly but pretty close?)

Misc. Comments

Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1876), p.290.

The end of no.2 suggests a sacred purpose and resolves into a lengthy sort of Amen (at least as translated by Cragin- I am guessing that it is similar in Speidel's original) but am not certain that this is enough to categorize it as a sacred chorus, as most of the brief work and poem does not seem to carry such connotations.
