In 1820, he moved to Stettin in Prussia (now Szczecin in Poland), where he worked as organist and music director of the school. It was while there that he did most of his work as a composer, publishing a version of Goethe 's Erlkönig in 1824 (written 1817/18) which some say rivals Schubert 's far more famous version. He went on to set many other poets' works, including Friedrich Rückert , and translations of William Shakespeare and Lord Byron .
