I bring recordings of the work by the German Baroque author Friedrich Spee. It's from his book Trutznachtigall (Rivaling the Nightingale).

Songs: Ach, wann doch, Jesu 00:00; Ich neulich früh zu Morgen 00:38; Der Wind auf leeren Strassen 01:16; Ach Halton, lieber Halton mein 01:34; Neulich seine Schaflein weidet 01:54;

As usual, you have chosen some interesting and not run-of-the-mill music.

These Baroque songs I think work well as banjo tunes partly because many were played on some rather percussive, non-sustaing instruments such as the harpsichord. However, it takes talent and musical sense to transcribe them, and to play them well.

My German's kind of rusty, but would that translate as 'Dance Night Hedgehog'?

German is not my mother language. I based the translation on wikipedia. But even in Czech it translates

Trutz nachtigall =) vzdoro slavicek = ) defiance nightingale.

Thank you George for the wonderful response. I'm glad you enjoyed my selection of songs. Ondrej
