Thread Name: German folk music II
Subject: RE: German folk music II
It might be a bias in my perception or recollection but from the instances I have in mind the way of the tunes was mostly to and not from Germany. There are a couple of examples of German folksongs borrowing tunes from other song cultures (especially in the East of Europe) but also from the British Isles. For the songs you have mentioned, I have no knowledge, but I'll have a look with no big chance of success.
