Plattdüütsche Lieder |
"Lütt Matten" is about a care-free hare who wanted to learn to dance. He was readily helped in his ambition by a willing fox, who'd do the dancing and a crow who'd play the fiddle. Alas, poor Lütt Matten finished up as the main course for this unholy alliance of fox and crow.
We sang in the "Klingende Runde für jung und alt" and later I loved singing it with Kerstin Knie. We tried to do it with two-part singing accompanied by concertina. It was never especially successful but we had no end of fun trying.
