Title The Cantata by Ferdinand von Hiller

On the 17th of December, 1850, for the 80th anniversary of Beethoven's birthday, a cantata was played on the honour of Beethoven, in Köln. Ferdinand Hiller had composed the music and had written the words.

The young Ferdinand Hiller (1811-1885) had met Beethoven, at the end of his life, with his master Johann Nepomuk Hummel. He was very impress by Beethoven.

When Beethoven died, he cut some of Beethoven's hair. These have become famous since the book about Beethoven's hair...
