Well guys we have finally arrived back in Germany! My homeland! So grill a brat, put on some lederhosen, grab a beer, climb into a tank and invade someone! AHHH better scratch that last bit—we are after all 0-2 even though we always have the coolest uniforms and the neatest equipment. So it goes.

You guys may have thought my French lineup was never ending—well buckle up because our tour of German composers IS never ending! And our lead off man is NOT Conrad Paumann or Hieronymus Praetorius, we already featured those guys a while back. So we will begin with Oswald von Wolkenstein (1377-1445). Obviously his music is late medieval, early renaissance but we have to start somewhere. He was born in Kiens, a small village in the Italian Tyrolean Alps just south of Austria. And at age 10 let home to be a squire for a Knight Errant. He spent the next 14 years traveling all over Europe and the Holy Land only returning home after the death of his father---so he could begin fighting over the estate and his inheritance. The guy had a very interesting life so I'm not going to get into it all here rather check this out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald_von_Wolkenstein I couldn't find a whole lot of music but I did find this:

Next up is Heinrich Finck (1444/45-1527). Compared to von Wolkenstein, Finck is virtually anonymous. He was probably born at Bamberg but nothing is certainly known either of the place or date of his birth. Between 1492 and 1506 he was a musician in, and later possibly conductor of the court orchestra of successive kings of Poland. He held the post of conductor at Stuttgart from about 1510-1514 and then he became a composer at the Hofkapelle of Emperor Maximilian, and in 1527 Hofkapellmeister of Emperor Ferdinand I in Vienna, where he died.

I could not find a lot of music attributed to Finck but I did find this:

And this---note the similarity of this work to the English Madrigals of the same period.

And here is a hymn written for the Dobro—don't ask me about the painting—I don't get it either.

We'll finish out today with another composer who ended up at the court of Maximilian--- Hans Buchner (1483- 1538) Not much is know about his early life but we DO know he was the cathedral organist of Constance in 1506. This of course was during the Reformation and when the bishop was forced out of Constance and took up residence in Meersburg, Buchner followed along. In 1529 he applied for a position at Speyer but apparently demanded too high a salary. He was often called to inspect new organs, such as those of Zurich and Heidelberg. His most important legacy is the Fundamentbuch, a collection of organ music that also includes an introduction to the techniques of playing and improvising. Buchner's (Sämtliche Orgelwerke) are edited by Jost Harro Schmidt as volumes 54 & 55 of Das Erbe deutscher Musik (Litolff/Frankfurt, 1974).

Here is his Kyrie in summis festis:

And the: Victimae paschali laudes:

AND the: Sequentia in Resurrectione Domini.

The inflammation in my urethra has finally gone away.  That's good.  I've been injecting huge amount of Benadryl directly in there to solve the problem.  Fortunatly I got both the medication and syringes from a guy named Sergio who hangs out near the rehab center after hours.  He also gives me some bootlegged Asian porn sometimes.  So yeah, my life is totally improving.

Ah, Germanfest was last weekend here in the land of cheese curds and bratwurst.

I'm still digesting the lederhosen...

I really like the selection this week!

"3 pennies in the purse and a little piece of bread"

(translation of one of the first lines of the song "Es fügt sich" -which means "as it happens" or "it fits into"- by:) - Oswald von Wolkenstein

 

To say that Herr von Wolkenstein had an interesting life is a huge understatement. The guy was notoriously - and often to his great detriment - involved into the politics and wars of his days - and busy all over Europe. He seems to have been quite notorious in his "love-life" as well.

 Wiki: Oswald wrote many songs of an erotic nature, the most famous being "Ain Graserin" (KL 76) about a bathing maid, whose "frizzy hair" between her legs leads a man to rape her on the spot.

Well, you see, he was "a little special" - not just in the pubic hair department. Some of his earlier songs he dedicated to the wife of another man.

Oswald gained and lost more than his peers could dream of or grasp, he fought and withstood, he surrendered and often times had to flee his homeland from his foes only to come back and pick up the fight again, modify his alliances and begin the cycle of gain and loss anew. Virility, resilience, stubborness and stamina would be fitting words. He would be made a high ranking member in The Order of the Dragon by the then soon-to-be Emperor - and in the face of a Hussite invasion.

 

The Wolkenstein family by the way comes from one of the most beautiful places, the Dolomite Alps (Southern Tyrol).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dolomites as you can see have a very distinct rock formation that often is borderline surreal in shape.

The inhabitants of this land are a proud and defensible people.

thanks Matcha! That was why I didn't go into detail about von Wolkenstein. There is a ton of stuff and a lot of it is hard to believe!

The pleasure is mine, Evil Genius. Indeed there is a lot to cover, for instance the name "Wolkenstein" itself, which means "cloud-stone".

The family had a castle on the wall of one of the mountains you have just seen above, Mount Stevia on the third picture (the one right behind the woman with the red helmet). What is left of the castle, today:

 

There you go. Mount Stevia and the ruins of Wolkenstein Castle.

Makes sense, the family name "cloud stone", doesn´t it?

.

The Münster in Freiburg and the organ heard in the linked recording of the Sequentia in Resurrectione Domini form a harmonious unity - resulting in a very clear, bright and pleasant sound.

The Freiburger Münster has a total of 4 organs, of which the most inconspicuous, the choir-organ, has been upgraded just recently with a new model from Switzerland:

Now, that´s a new and shiny organ. Other than this choir-organ, the Münster has an excellent (archangel) Michael-organ, a Mary-organ and, of course, a nave-organ. When all of these organs are played together and with full throttle and -intonation the whole Münster is swingin from its crypts up to its spire.

 

 

It sounds really good and the building has a friendly atmosphere.

My friend wanted to trade me a Mylie Cyrus poster for some expired enemas and some Flintstone vitamins.  I took his shit, kept my poster, and stole his wallet too.  He's a bitch anyway.  He smells like piss and has a deformed and palsied arm.  I'm pretty sure he shit himself when I hit him as hard as I did.  Whatever, I'm still going to his party next weekend.

you're right Matcha. MANY MANY years ago I had an E.Power Biggs album in which he played the four great toccatas at Munster and from a centralized counsel. Sadly there will be no Friday Night Organ this week. I'm very very ill with God knows what: High fever, pissing blood, and throwing up. It is not fun. Just typing this is a major effort. But great find about Munster.

Hope you get much better, soon, and best wishes to you, The Evil Genius! Remote diagnostics says its a bloody viral infection (or sumthin´as bad) you are struggling with. No fun at all, I can empathize with the amount of effort it takes to carry out tasks normally (if at all) looked at as simple and small.

So, thank you very much for your message! Get well, brother!

Ok, look, a totally unrelated fluffy mammal!

Damn man I hope you get better soon, I just read this right now, pissing blood sounds pretty scary.   

#Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)

I started doing nude modeling at this art school.  The school meets at night in the basement of an auto parts store/ sex shop.  The first night I was there I fell asleep and started pissing.  It was cool though.  A dude stabbed me a couple of times last week.  That guy is a motherfucker.  He said that he was going to fail the class because of me.  I figured out that he's secretly gay and/ or a necrophiliac and is coming to terms with that and is acting out as a result.  A chick in there has this tumor that she keeps petting.  There you go, my life is complicated now.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts---my cold black dead heart almost lost a beat. I am feeling better. It was actually a bacterial infection AGAIN but this time your old pal EG was ready. I gulped down a pile of "fish-mox" I just got a week ago from a "survivalist" company. Shortly there after THAT is when blood started to pour out of the old pecker. At first I thought I had fucked up doing this but then after a day I peed out this giant bloody blob of something--it was pretty gross and God knows how it actually managed to exit. Yes that was straight up scary. You don't know if legs and a head will pop out of it. However a few hours later I had to pee and guess what? no blood. And by yesterday I was actually able to eat some egg-drop soup without tossing it. First food in four days. The fever is greatly reduced today and peeing just fine. I'm still taking the fish-mox. I figure I'll know when to stop. Once the infection is wiped out it will move on to destroy the next bacteria on the list which is the normal stuff in the gut--this will result in a case of mud butt. Even now I can feel it percolating, simmering, and bubbling away. 

Now before I get jumped on for this solution and renamed Insane Evil Genius Let us review the facts. Fish amoxicillin is absolutely identical to the stuff your doctor prescribes. No it is not recommended for human consumption BUT that is only because it is not FDA approved...which is why mine cost $28. Now last year when I had this identical issue I went to the hospital for four days--where they performed spinal taps, cat scans etc. It was the most miserable four days of my life (which is saying a lot when you consider I've been to basic training and I've been in jail) and you may recall I finally had to just up and escape from the hospital. (I walk a fine line friends). The bill for that horrendous experience was $70,000. Of which I had to pony up nearly 4k. And of course the authorities at the hospital were furious at me for "going over the wall". when I got the bill various antibiotics of which one WAS amoxicillin 5K  PER IV bag. 

So did I take a chance? yes. It was a calculated risk (thank GOD for Xanthine and his guidance; hey mamma didn't raise a fool). I'm sure you will all agree that $28 out of pocket is better than 4K as part of a 70K bill.  Hopefully tomorrow I will at least be down to a few hundred yards of shitty road---I can live with a little mud butt.
