Thread Name: german marches
Subject: RE: german marches
ta2, I think we had a similar discussion back when I was discovering Christmas Carols using various German folk tunes. I only hear the tune and the emotion expressed in musical language. (We were referring to Brahms' tunes.) Sometimes it is a blessing "not to understand." (or at least to be able to ignore the words)
