HEIMKEHR is the song of one who, coming home at evening time, expresses his joy at the happy prospect of reunion with a loved ona.
In the second song a lover has a vision of life with his sweetheart as a glorious progress ; with her. even in death the vision will not fade : the glory will spread through all eternity.
Allerseelen, quiet and flowing, is a song of tender remembrance ; ' wie einst in Mai' (' as once in May ') is the refrain to each verse.
Wie sollten is a song of urging, on the old, old theme. ' Out with it-we love each other.' etc. The triplet figure in the accompaniment adds a spur to the lover's persuasion.
