Looking for German Romantic theory resource

    Are there any theory resources for the German Romantic period? I have plenty of good material for different composers and eras (Brillhart, Shannon, Gauldin, Ruiter-Feenstra come to mind), but nothing that focuses on German Romantic theory specifically.

    If I peek at Ruiter-Feenstra's bibliography I don't find enough context to understand the request: German theories of Romanticism? Harmony as practiced by Wagner? Schenkerian analysis? Have you already looked at Rosen's book, an enormously fun read?

    I'm thinking Reger, Rheinberger, and Bruckner, but it's hard to not include Wagner in any of this! Harmonies mostly. That being said, Rosen's book may be what I'm looking for, thank you!

    Ruiter-Feenstra was for Bach.
