- This piece is probably part of one of Spohr's oratoria or masses. Fun puzzle figuring out where it comes from...
- Spohr wrote a choral fugue in C Major, WoO85. Its formal title is Lasst uns Dankgesang erheben, and the subtitle is Choral Fugue (though that might be Spohr's or someone else's). Tagged as a fugue for now, with undetermined instrumentation. Hopefully, someone will upload the WoO85 sooner or later so this can be checked.
- Interesting. Worldcat has this info on the work you mention: copy @ U Basel. HMB confirms the publishing date given by Basel (Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1838), p.138 (with a fuller description @ Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1839), p.138), Berlin: T. Trautwein, "Auswahl vorzüglicher Musik-Werke in gebundener Schreibart von Meistern alter und neuer Zeit. 9te Lieferung.")
- "Lasst uns Dankgesang erheben" is also the name of the concluding fugal number of Spohr's D. Befreiung Deutschlands, according to his own (his and his wife's-s omething, I forget; he didn't write all of it, I know) "Autobiography". I wonder?... - ES
