Thread Name: German folk music II
Subject: RE: German folk music II
On closer examination, I am leaning a little more towards Susanne's point of view as to how German folk songs come to be sung to Irish and British tunes. The tune that the authors sing on their CD for " 's ist Alles lauter Falschheit" is definitely "The Bonny Light Horseman", but it is not the tune that is printed in the book for that song.
