A late Romantic/early modern German composer, he was a cellist, and was famous for the etudes and solos that he composed for the cello.  The lush, chordal spiritual was dedicated to the memory of Austro-Hungarian conductor Artur Nikisch, and was originally scored for 12 cellos.  This piece can be performed in several different combinations--only C flutes, only alto flutes, only bass flutes, or any combination of these flutes.
