Britten refers here to the 'Great' C major Symphony of Schubert, D944, finished in 1826 and now numbered as the Ninth, but commonly referred to at this time as the Seventh, before the modern renumbering of the symphonies took into account the incomplete E major Symphony, D729, (sketched in 1821 and chronologically the seventh of the series), and the B minor 'Unfinished' Symphony, D759, dating from 1822.
