Thread Name: Songs of Corvus Corax (German Band)
Subject: RE: Songs of Corvus Corax (German Band)
"Ougenweide" is a song in Mittelhochdeutsch (Middle High German, 1050-1350), not Romanian. It was a signature song of the wonderful medieval folk rock band Ougenweide who recorded it in 1973 as the title track of their eponymous album, "Ougenweide".

Corvus Corax covered it in 1999 on their album Tempi Antiquuii. Up to now I didn't care vary much for this band or similar ones like In Extremo which seem to be mostly bad goth / fake medieval stage show. But some of the tracks Runrig Fan linked to on YouTube are surprisingly nice.
