Summary/Abstract: Despite a healthy interest in Schubert’s reception history, scholarship has shown little interest in the poetic tributes lavished on the composer following his premature death. Eduard Duller’s ‘Franz Schubert’s Todtenfeyer’ and Carl Adam Kaltenbrunnner’s ‘Schubert’s Todtenfeyer’ provide enough information to suggest that further investigation of this fascinating subject would be salutary, offering deeper insights about how Schubert was perceived by his contemporaries. It is hoped this essay will provoke greater interest in this field that could lead to a more complete picture of the man and his music.
