Possibly first published in 12 Gesänge f. vierstimmigen Männergesang. (7th volume, 1851) (see List of works by Franz Abt).
- Even more likely in the mid-1840s though (like Op.59) though not necessarily of course...?- Schissel (indeed, the text was printed, with "Melodie von F. Abt" under the title", in a book published in 1848 titled "Schweizerisches Volks-Liederbuch". The melody might admittedly have only circulated in manuscript copy at that point and not yet have been published per se. That also only accounts for the melody, not the accompaniment.)
