Division "Hermann Göring" songs or marches

Post by wiganer » 21 Jul 2008 19:12

Hello can anybody help,

Did the Hermann Göring division have their own unit song or music, if so does anybody know what it was called or what it sounded like.

I once saw something on the back of a music CD but cant seem to find it again now.

any help welcomed and thanks for your help in advance.

regards Mark

Hello, Mark

This probably isn't what you've hoped for, but I guess it's better than nothing: I have no idea at the moment if the unit had a song of its own, but I know that they used the old Gottfried Rode's march "Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz" as their parade march.

Cheers,
Ivan

0:11 Die ganze Kompanie (Herms Niel)
0:35 Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz [AM II, 243] [AM III, 137] (Gottfried Rode) Trio: Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz (Anonym)
1:18 unknown

(Reminder: Rode's march "Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz", based on the folk song of the same name, was the unit parade march.)

Cheers,
Ivan

Please, could you tell, which source does mention this march as the divisional parade march? :)

Of course: Fred K. Prieberg, "Handbuch Deutsche Musiker 1933-1945", p. 5792. (Note: He mentions it as the regimental parade march. The regiment later grew into a division. Naturally, units didn't change their parade marches and songs depending on their size.)

Cheers,
Ivan
