German Folk Music |
I first heard "Der Lindenbaum (Am Brunnen vor dem Tore)" sung by the King's Singers on their LP "Die King's Singers singen deutsche Volkslieder". In Germany this song can generally be found as a standard and performed in mixed choirs. This song is one of my German favourites and if on the seldom occasions when asked to sing "something in German", then "Der Lindenbaum" gets a rare old belting from me (at least I always enjoy it!). The version that I play and sing can be found in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 1.
"Der Lindenbaum" has been recorded by:
Berliner Männerchor on "Am Brunnen vor dem Tore" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
Rudolf Schock on "Remember" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
