Anton (or Antonio) Diabelli (1781 – 1858) was an Austrian music publisher, editor and composer. Best known in his time as a publisher, he is most familiar today as the composer of the waltz on which Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his set of thirty-three Diabelli Variations. He was born in Mattsee near Salzburg. A musical child, he sang in the boys' choir at the Salzburg Cathedral where he is believed to have taken music lessons with Michael Haydn. By age 19, Diabelli had already composed several important compositions, including six masses.

Diabelli was trained to enter the priesthood and in 1800 he joined the monastery at Raitenhaslach, Bavaria. He remained there until 1803 when Bavaria closed all its monasteries. He produced a number of well known works as a composer, including an operetta called Adam in der Klemme, several masses and songs and numerous piano and classical guitar pieces. Among these are pieces for piano four hands that are popular among pianists of all ages. His music goes on to be the fundamentals of opera, and is considered by some to have set the fundamental stepping stones for classic jazz.

Diabelli's composition Pleasures of Youth: Six Sonatinas is a collection of six sonatinas depicting a struggle between unknown opposing forces. This is suggested by the sharp and frequent change in dynamics from forte to piano. When forte is indicated, the pianist is meant to evoke a sense of wickedness, thus depicting the antagonist. In contrast, the markings of piano represent the protagonist with its softer, more tranquil tones.

The "Te Deum" (You God) is an early Christian Hymn of praise. Traditionally ascribed to Saint Ambrose and Saint Augustine, contemporary scholars disagree and some assign it to Nicetas, bishop of Remesiana (4th-5th century). The hymn is also sometimes styled "Hymnus Ambrosianus", the "Ambrosian Hymn"; and in the Roman Breviary it is still entitled, at the end of Matins for Sunday, "Hymnus SS. Ambrosii et Augustini". The Roman Breviary direct the recitation of the Te Deum at the end of Matins and for special occasions such as the canonization of a saint, the election of a pope, the publication of a treaty of peace, a royal coronation, etc.

Although originally created for accompanied chorus, I created this arrangement for Concert (Pedal) Harp & String Ensemble (Violins (2), Viola & Cello).
