...Ännchen von Tharau’ , a well-known 17th-c. poem, often sung and commonly regarded as a Volkslied . It was long believed to be by S. Dach , but doubt has been cast on this attribution in favour of H. Albert who wrote the tune. It is a nuptial song intended, and perhaps commissioned, for the wedding of Annke, daughter of the pastor of Tharau in East Prussia. The original is in dialect, and the High German version normally sung was made by Herder in 1778 to a tune by Silcher . The poem was translated by H. W. Longfellow as ‘Annie of...

...and Käthchen Schönkopf , as she is usually called, contemplated marriage but abandoned the intention early in 1768 , though they corresponded until 1770 . The relationship is referred to in Dichtung und Wahrheit (Bk. 7), in which Käthchen appears under the names Annette and Ännchen and is described as ‘ein gar hübsches, nettes Mädchen’ and ‘jung, hübsch, munter, liebevoll und so angenehm, daß sie wohl verdiente in dem Schrein des Herzens eine Zeitlang als eine kleine Heilige aufgestellt zu werden’. She married in 1770 a Dr Kanne , who later became deputy...

...Dach was gifted musically, as well as poetically. Much of his poetry is occasional, written to order for weddings or funerals, christenings or graduations, and provided him with a small income to supplement his meagre stipend. The most famous poem associated with his name, ‘ Ännchen von Tharau ’, is now regarded as probably the work of Dach's friend Heinrich Albert , who certainly composed the tune. In addition to lyrical and occasional poetry, Dach wrote two plays, Cleomedes ( 1635 ) and Sorbuisa (also known as Prussiarchus , 1644 ), with music (now...

...before Prince Ottokar , he will not allow Agathe to marry him. Caspar gives Max a gun loaded with a magic bullet, forged in the Wolf's Glen. There lives Samiel , a wild huntsman, to whom Caspar has sold himself, and now plans to sell Max in his place. Agathe and her cousin Ännchen warn Max not to go to the Glen, but he ignores them. He and Caspar forge seven magic bullets—six will do his bidding, but the seventh will obey Samiel. Max uses six bullets hunting; the seventh is left for the test. He aims at a dove. Agathe, arriving with the Hermit, calls to...

...devotes himself to duty and saves the business from bankruptcy. A crisis arises when Fritz, accusing Christiane of infidelity, strikes her in the presence of their sick daughter Ännchen. Christiane, who is as innocent as is Apollonius, has, however, become estranged from Fritz, for she has found out his deceit, of which Apollonius is still unaware. The blow results in Ännchen's death and in Christiane's greater attraction to Apollonius, from whom she conceals it. Fritz reacts to the loss of their daughter by plotting the murder of Apollonius on the...

...interrupts her. George runs in to relate that he found Emmy murdered by the vampire, whom he has shot. Marschner continues here to emulate Weber but provides new effects of his own. The dramatic digression provided by Emmy's Romanze matches in general musical style that of Ännchen in Der Freischütz , although Marschner does not accompany her with the exotic instrumental countermelody that characterizes the genre in the works of Mozart, Kreutzer and Weber. The spontaneous men's drinking quartet, an operatic innovation of Marschner's (it was encored at all...
