What is challenging for the baritone soloist performing this aria is the extremely high tessitura in
the final section. The score indicates that this aria can be performed by either a tenor or a
baritone, however, a lyric tenor would have a much easier time singing the lines of text "sind
Bisserinnen, ein zartes" (around her there are penitent women) with an ethereal tone quality in a
softer dynamic. The same is true in the final two measures of the aria where Schumann asks the
baritone to sing a high G with a pianissimo dynamic marking ("Gnade bedtirfend!" Grant us
mercy!). The skillful singer will execute this passage with a head voice dominant registration
accompanied by the appoggio breath management technique (see figure 22).
