This is an apolitical forum for discussions on the Axis nations and related topics hosted by the Axis History Factbook in cooperation with Christian Ankerstjerne’s Panzerworld and Christoph Awender's WW2 day by day.
Founded in 1999.
A new one: this song, which is still widely unknown in the world of internet, was the battle song of one of major (early) Third Reich organisations (whose name can be heard in the clip). What was the song called?
The name of the organisation is an acronym composed of four letters. You can hear it near the end of the clip, right before "jetzt und allezeit". If you search the music section with this acronym, you'll instantly find the name of the song, and also who recorded the version used in the clip
Yes, the song is barely known today, although it was a battle song of a major NS organisation (and a very catchy one too).

It was also recorded by the Leibstandarte band, in early 1934.
Herms Niel setzte sich einst mit Liebhabern seiner Musik zusammen. Die Leute konnten ihm Fragen stellen und er sprach über sein Leben. Zum Beispiel, wie er in die Musik kam. Vieles, was wir heute noch über ihn wissen, wissen wir aus dem, was von den Leuten erzählt wurde, die ihm zuhörten. Erst Jahrzehnte später erinnerten sich die Menschen daran.
Herms Niel erzählte ihnen auch, welchen Marsch er überhaupt nicht mochte (obwohl es mir sehr gut
gefällt). Es ist ein Charakterstück von Kurt Noack - Opus 5.
Please post in the forum language, which is English. If you're by any chance quoting a text, please use quotation marks or the quote option within a post (the fourth button from the upper left in the post field). Also, Noack's Opus 5 was "Heinzelmännchens Wachtparade", known in English as the "Brownies' Parade", "Parade of the Brownies", or the "Brownies' Guard Parade", as Greg correctly wrote.
You're right, I only knew the German edition title. The German text was a mistake on my part, I had problems with my translation program. In the following you find the text again in English.
Herms Niel once sat down with lovers of his music. People could ask his questions and he talked about his life. For example, how he got into music. Much of what we still know about him today, we know from what was told by the people who listened to him. It wasn't until decades later that people remembered.
Herms Niel also told which march he didn't do at all (although I liked it very much). It is a character piece by Kurt Noack - Opus 5
