The piece was composed as a setting of a song (verse XXIX from Canto Third) from Walter Scott 's popular epic poem The Lady of the Lake , [2] in a German translation by Adam Storck  ( de ) (1780–1822), [3] and thus forms part of Schubert's Liederzyklus vom Fräulein vom See . In Scott's poem the character Ellen Douglas, the Lady of the Lake ( Loch Katrine in the Scottish Highlands ), has gone with her exiled father to stay in the Goblin's cave as he has declined to join their previous host, Roderick Dhu, in rebellion against King James. Roderick Dhu, the chieftain of Clan Alpine, sets off up the mountain with his warriors, but lingers and hears the distant sound of the harpist Allan-bane, accompanying Ellen who sings a prayer addressed to the Virgin Mary , calling upon her for help. Roderick Dhu pauses, then goes on to battle. [4]

Among the various works Schubert wrote for church use, particular mention may be made of the second of his six complete settings of the Mass. He completed his final setting of the Mass in the last year of his life, and it was first performed the following year.
