Der Ohrwurmgesang (the earwig song) 3 part choir SAB


A humorous choral song in German written for three part choir (sopranos, altos and basses)
I discovered Balduin Bählamm (by Wilhelm Busch) thanks to a book given to me by a German colleague.
I decided to use the section where the galumphing poet discovers the questionable joys of nature in his encounters with earwigs and birds.
Of course I am using the double meaning of Ohrwurm, in hopes that the tune will be regarded as catchy 🙂
