Hurrah! Die Toten reiten schnell!

Erm, yes, I know that's "deutsch" and not "english."
It's a quote from Gottfried August Buerger's "Lenore,"
which has been set to music by numerous composers.

The interesting thing is that "Lenore" seems to have branched off
from an English narrative about
The Suffolk ... what is it? miracle?
Both Child and Roud I believe.

Maybe there are songs about that in English.

(By the way, an English translation of the above:
Hurrah! The dead ride swiftly!)
