About the composer
For years, Fanny Hensel has been known as the sister of Felix Mendelssohn. Since the discovery of many of her compositions, some previously published in Felixs name, she has become more widely recognised in her own right.

About the piece
Gebet in der Christnacht is a solo song from 1823. Here it is arranged for SSA, showcasing the teenaged composers use of harmony that became synonymous with the early Romantics. (See also my a cappella SATB arrangement).
Gebet in der Christnacht (Prayer on Christmas Eve) is one of at least eight songs Hensel composed in 1823 which sets poems by Wilhelm Müller. It is from the cycle Johannes und Esther. (Im Frühling zu lesen.) (John and Esther. (To read in the spring.))
