After the premiere of 12 Dec 1870, the poet Paul Heyse wrote to Rheinberger: "I do not want to wait until we see each other again, most honoured friend, to say to you how much your work grabbed hold of me, lifted me up, and washed me away on a current of strength and beauty, swelling higher and higher.".
