Text from Des Knaben Wunderhorn.
Drawn from the text of Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth's Magic Horn), the title of this song translates to "Three angels sang a sweet air," and tells the remorseful story of the sinful apostle Peter. Peter cries tears of repentance, and the music imagines paradise, but ends in a doubtful piano. For advanced singers.
