Thread Name: Lyr Add: National Anthem of Liechtenstein
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: National Anthem of Liechtenstein
McGrath, the reason one would sing it in English if there were a singable English version is the same reason one would climb Mt. Everest. FWIW I led a group of about thirty in singing it quite enjoyably in Esperanto last month. Just the first verse, though.

I spent a few very enjoyable days and, a few days later, one miserable night in Liechtenstein in March, 1973. Nearly froze to death staying up all night reading The Moon is a Harsh Mistress in the bus shelter (didn't merit the term "station", was open to the alpine winter air). Great (and cheap) escargot at the Hotel England.
