jofield Lyr Req: Ich hatt' einen Kameraden (57* d) RE: Lyr Req: Ich Hatt' ein' Kamerade 10 Oct 00


Right. I have answered my own question. The German anthem was composed at the end of the 18th century by Haydn. "Ein feste Burg..." is Luther's Hymn. From what I have just read, the super-nationalist verses ("Deutschland ├╝ber Alles...") have simply been dropped, and only the third verse, which speaks of unity, justice, and freedom is sung. Good idea, to preserve a great melody and skip the nationalist sentiments.
