It became his most popular work, and he later composed two versions for string orchestra. The poem is by Richard Dehmel (1863-1920), who published it in his collection Weib und Welt (1896). "Yesterday evening I heard your 'Transfigured Night', and I should consider it a sin of omission if I failed to say a word of thanks to you for your wonderful sextet. I had intended to follow the motives of my text in your composition; but I soon forgot to do so, I was so enthralled by the music." Richard Dehmel to Arnold Schönberg, December 12, 1912.
