Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Much testimony attesting to the great popularity in the nineteenth century of certain musical numbers from Der Freischutz above all, but also from Euryanthe and Oberon, as well as songs from Leyer und Schwert, excerpts from Kampf und Sieg, Aufforderung Zum Tanz, and a great variety of transcriptions. For a time Weber's popularity challenged that of Rossini in the German lands.
