After the success of Die Waffen-SS Alte Kameraden Singen!..our first Veteran Soldatenchor Minden's acapella recording, ( i.e male voices singing without musical instruments... unlike our black-covered 'The Leibstandarte-SS' CD, which offers Hitler's Bodyguard Band & Choir performing together!), Tomahawk Films are delighted to re-master & promote a second acapella studio session that this incredible choir of Waffen-SS Veteran combat soldiers also recorded in the early post-war years in a small room above a Bier-keller in the beautiful old German town of Minden..
Entitled Soldatenlieder und Hornsignale der Waffen-SS, (Soldier Songs and Military Bugle Calls), this remarkable CD contains a further 10 much favoured, heart-rending SS marching-songs, including: In Junkers Kneipe, Ganz einsam und verlassen, Soll ich Dir mein Liebchen nennen, Wir lagen vor Madagaskar, Ein Tiroler wollte jagen, Frühmorgens singt die Amsel... and an emotional and quite stunning rendition of Lili Marleen....all sung in the haunting baritone & bass voices of this 50-strong choir drawn from the former ranks of Das Reich, Germania, Der Führer, Totenkopf, Wiking and the SS-Leibstandarte 'Adolf Hitler'.
Unique to this CD is the inclusion between each song-track of a distinct bugle called as used by the Waffen-SS both in combat and on the parade ground, performed here by former Waffen-SS Stabshornist Arthur Schulte. A range of 11 specific calls from from the Waffen-SS inventory include:
Wecken - Reveille, Rasch Vorwärts - Quick Advance, Das Ganze halt - All Halt, Sammeln - Assembly, Vergatterung - Parade the Guard, Trab - Trot, Locken zum Zapfenstreich - First Post .
