The award of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 to the Bengali writer, philosopher and teacher Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941) for the collection Gitanjali created considerable interest in his work in Europe and America. One of the ﬁrst writers who set his poems to music was the Czech composer J. B. Foerster; others included Leoš Janáček and Alexander Zemlinsky, of the Slovak composers Alexander Albrecht and the others. In 1923 Ján Móry (1892 – 1978) composed Tagore Album, op. 12, a cycle of 14 songs for vocals and piano, which was issued in printed form by the Ries & Erler publishing house in Berlin. This cycle enriched the work inspired by Tagore’s poetry in Czecho-Slovak and European musical culture.
