the woods and the fields, the huntsman and the hunt.)

St. Hubertus is the patron saint of hunters among French and German-speaking peoples of Europe. The crucifix between the antlers of the stag at the left of the central image symbolizes the vision that appeared to him at the moment of his epiphany.

Text is from a poem written by Wilhelm M�ller in 1822 and set to music in 1823 by Konradin Kreutzer. The opening line makes reference to the F�rster (forest ranger) and his traditional green uniform (Trachtenanzug).
