Bauern-Bekenntnis (Wir Bauern plagen und mühen uns sehr...)

Post by Alarm_Uboat » 29 Aug 2023 10:59

Hello everyone!
According to the information I was able to find this song was recorded (Musikkorps des Inf.-Lehr-R̶e̶g̶t̶.̶, der Infanterie Schule, B̶e̶r̶l̶i̶n̶, mit M-Chor:
S̶o̶l̶d̶a̶t̶e̶n̶c̶h̶o̶r̶ ̶S̶t̶u̶r̶m̶b̶a̶n̶n̶ ̶1̶,̶ ̶W̶e̶s̶t̶,̶ ̶J̶ü̶t̶e̶r̶b̶o̶g̶ Ltg.: Obermmstr. Bendix Tumforde). The author of the song was Сarl Feilke.

What Tumforde's band recorded was actually Feilke's "Bauern-Marsch", with "Bauern-Bekenntnis" in trio. The performer credits posted above, copied from Mr Kaiser's website, are incorrect; the band was of a battalion, not a regiment, the school was stationed in Döberitz, not Berlin (misidentification by Mr Kaiser), and the chorus was stationed in Gütergotz, not Jüterbog (misinformation from the record label); "Sturmbann I/W", credited on the label, doesn't mean "Sturmbann 1, West", as Mr Kaiser thought, but "I. Sturmbann der Wachstandarte" (see this post).

Many thanks Ivan! Kaiser really has a lot of erroneous names (I wonder where he gets information about them from). In any case, thank you for the detailed description.
