Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Relates Weber's patriotic compositions that are connected with his visits to Berlin--the chorus KRIEGS-EID to a text by Heinrich Collin (1812), the song cycle Leyer und Schwert to texts of Theodor Korner (1814), and the cantata Kampf und Sieg (1816) to a text by Johann Wohlbruck--to historical events of the period.
