Misc. Comments

Described as a cantata in contemporary reviews of performances. Is the subject secular or sacred? Not positive. (Sacred cantata however for us usually implies text taken from a sacred source, not just writings, which Lingg's writings aren't.)

Salamis: Siegesgesang der Griechen- battle (victory?)-song of the Greeks- does not suggest a (based-on) Biblical sacred text, at any rate...

1867, not 1886.
