I also assumed the same until I saw this at Wiki (which, of course, can never be completely relied upon ;))

The singers are accompanied by a musical ensemble ranging from a small instrumental ensemble to a full symphonic orchestra.

RECAP:

19th Century between 1827 and 1900. Work is non-orchestral, has vocals, no choir, has one soloist vocals, not an opera.

Composer is German. Not Wagner, nor Schubert.

Then I shall guess that it is Geistliches Wiegenlied (Sacred Lullaby), part of the 2 songs for alto, viola, and piano, Opus 91.
