This collection of German songs contains two strains of tradition: the political song and the folk song. It is not always clear where the distinction between the two can be drawn, since many political songs become folk songs due to their popularity, and many folk songs have a cle...ar, emancipatory - and thus political - dimension.

The addition of scores is another plus, offering an opportunity to recognize the songs musically.
