    Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who was so frequently self-critical, apparently held his setting of the 42nd Psalm in very high esteem, as can be inferred from a letter of 5 August 1837 to Breitkopf & Härtel. The composers wish was fulfilled: after a fundamental expansion of the work and the first performance of this final version on 8 February 1838 at Leipzigs Gewandhaus, the 42nd Psalm was first printed that same year by Breitkopf & Härtel.
