Mein Herz und deine Stimme, WAB 79 Wikipedia
Bruckner composed the lied on a text of August von Platen, in 1868 during his stay in Linz. He dedicated it to Pauline Hofmann, sister of Bruckner's pupil Helene Hofmann.
The original manuscript is lost, but a copy of it is stored in the archive of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek. In 1930, the work was published in Band III/2, pp. 144–150 of the Göllerich/Auer biography. The song is issued in Band XXIII/1, No. 4 of the Gesamtausgabe.
The song is based on a text by August von Platen, to which Bruckner made three small changes:
The 60-bar long work in A major is scored for solo voice and piano. The continuous triplet figures on the piano ensure a uniform background for the song.
