|Ännchen von Tharau|
"Ännchen von Tharau" (by Simon Dach 1605-1659) and Lorelei were the first poems which I learned by heart in the early 1960's out of Teach Yourself More German. As a poem I found it very beautiful and have often quoted throughout the years. I first heard it as a song on a record called "Die King's Singers singen deutsche Volkslieder" and found it to be exquisitely beautiful.
The version I sing can be seen in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 3. The lyrics are by Heinrich Albert which are a little different from Simon Dach's poem and the melody is by Friedrich Silcher.
