Fanny Hensel divides the poem in two Recitativos and two Arias. The metaphors within text the give her rich opportunity for musical illustration. At the same time different musical moods are introduced to characterize the changing states of the dramatic process. "This work...begins to approach a kind of piece with which Hensel could have had great artistic success....It is a clear indication of her acceptance of herself as a real romantic composer. No longer trying to imitate Bach or Handel, but following her own instincts as to subject, form and vocabulary, Fanny's awakening understanding of herself as a composer paralleled Felix's, who finished his most successful cantata (which also happens to be on a secular theme and employs an original form), 'Die erste Walpurgisnacht' in February of 1832." (Victoria Sirota).
