The Forum Is Changing
Hi folks. Shortly this forum will be migrating to different software and, in addition, we will also have a new website address. To migrate all the posts, users, etc. will take a little time so there will be some downtime on the forum while this is done. I am trying to do this sooner rather than later so it may not be possible to give you prior notice of the downtime.
Once migrated to our new address, visitors to www.accordionists.co.uk will be automatically redirected to the new website address.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but the change to the software has now become really necessary.

19th century Vienna drinking song

If anyone knows the sheet music of this tune:

Ja mir san halt Lichtentaler

I discovered this tune on a cd with Viennese drinking songs. The track is called "Aber g'rebelt muss er sein".
This appears to be an old march, "Lichtenthaler Marsch" composed by Alois Strohmayer (1822-1890), and later on converted into a drinking song, still popular today in Vienna and Austria.

It seems Alois' father played music together with the composer Franz Schubert.

"Sohn des Privatlehrers Martin St., der noch gemeinsam mit Fr. Schubert in der Lichtentaler Kirche musiziert hatte"

And just when I was going to close my internet session... I found the sheet music in pdf...

It's an arrangment by Willy Jelinek, and the sheet music is in public domain, here it is:

I found this website five minutes ago, seems to be a digital dbase of old songs sheet music.
I'll have a look later this week, maybe some more treasures can be found here.

Happy to have found the sheet music already. Now I can learn the tune to play for an evening of songs I have to go to with my accordion. I wanted to play the tune and show it to some friends.
