"In Loewe's relatively few instrumental works a frequent affinity with literary subjects and a blurring of genre boundaries is noticeable... Most unusual is the literarization in the string quartet Quatuor spiritue,. op. 26 (1830), whose movements are based on biblical mottos and the chorale 'Mitten wir im Leben sind'." Peter Tenhaef in MGG2. Item #28111
