Leise, leise, Fromme Weise, a setting by Johan Friedrich Kind, was composed by Carl Maria von Weber between 1817 and 1821 (E Major) and premiered in June of the same year. This aria is part of Act II of his opera, Der Freischütz.

Premiered in 1821, Freischütz composed by Carl Maria von Weber, holds a major place in the history of opera as is often considered the first important German romantic opera. The libretto is based on a German folk legend and many of the tunes of the opera were thought to have been inspired by German folk tunes. This opera, where spoken dialogue and expressive tunes are closely intertwined, at the time of its composition, seems to have echoed the growing desire for unification in Germany and was praised for being a cement of national unity.

Act I opens on Max, a young assistant forester in love Agathe, the daughter of the head forester. He worries as he needs to succeed in a shooting competition to obtain her hand. The problem is, he seems out a luck and keeps missing targets, so when Caspar proposes him seven magic bullets that will always reach their target, Max accepts. Caspar, whose soul is to be forfeited to the devil the following day, hopes to manage to substitute Max in his place. Max, under the encouragements of Caspar decides to go at midnight to the Wolf’s Glen to cast his bullets.

Act II opens on Agathe filled with dark premonitions. A hermit has told her she would be in danger and she expresses her fears to her cousin Ännchen. Her cousin tries to cheer her up.
Left alone, Agathe awaits Max with news of his success and expresses her emotions in her aria: Leise, leise, Fromme Weise.
