The first issue of the present edition was published in 1832. The present edition is the fourteenth of fifty installments in the series, publication of which was not completed until 1850.

Schubert notated the vocal part of D716 in the bass (F) clef, but despite its low range, Diabelli changed it to the violin (G) clef and added some variants at the upper octave to make it performable for higher voices.

D450 exists in two versions; the present edition includes the second. The first version not published until 1895, as part of the complete edition. The German translation from Aeschylus (The Eumenides) is by Johann Mayrhofer (1787-1836), a friend of the composer. Item #23502
