Norwegenlied (Nach Norden braust Maschinenflug...)

Post by Ivan Ž. » 15 Nov 2020 19:32

Among various historical rarities, the National Library of Norway, in cooperation with the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, has published a completely unknown German (anti-British) song from WWII, entitled "Norwegenlied", with no further info. I've never heard of such a piece, nor was able to find any info on it (in countless sources). The song was broadcasted on 22 September 1940 (which means it was recorded prior to that date) and was preceded by radio fanfare (also unknown to me), played 10 times in a row, for almost four minutes (which was rather uncommon).

The song can be heard (in excellent quality and complete) here, at 3:55. It's probably the rarest WWII music sound file shared online.
(I usually discourage anyone from posting war propaganda songs, but this rarity, shared by two state institutions, is an exception.)

Well done, bravo! :thumbsup: (That's from a brand new auction - what a coincidence!) Finally, the lyrics - and also the info on authors :)

So it was a song of Infanterie-Regiment 193 (commanded by Karl von Beeren), created by two soldiers.

Cheers,
Ivan
