Drawing on the romantic spirit in music, Schubertís moving setting is of a poem by Goethe which compares a rushing waterfall to the soul of man, while Straussís gorgeous Mittagsruhe depicts the peace of a summer noontide.

Narrative vocal traditions are heard in Sibeliusís nationalist Vapautettu kuningatar, Brucknerís heroic Helgoland, and Griegís Landkjenning, which tells of the 10th century Norwegian king Oleg Tryggvason.

Das Liebesmahl der Apostel anticipates the religious ecstasies of Wagnerís Parsifal, while Debussyís early cantata Invocation resonates with Gallic sparkle.
