Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wife of a Soldier (Bertolt Brecht)
Subject: RE: Black Freighter/Wife of a Soldier
There are also two versions of Wife of the soldier, both in German, one with music by Kurt Weil and the other with music by Eisler. We managed to acquire both the Eisler and Weil song books recently, so I believe they are still around. I've sung the Weil, and it's a very vampy version, very unlike the County Down. If you'd like to track down the german, leave another message and I'll dig out publishers and other such details that don't lurk in my head. Pirate Jenny is on the Judy Collins "In my Life album, if that's a help. Good luck
