Today’s CD is four compositions comprised of 39 tracks that take 76:25 minutes (!) to cycle through once. In short, it’s well over an hour of listening to people warble in German.
Don’t get me wrong. I think the German language is delightful. Maybe even hilarious. But I prefer to know what my singers are saying. Plus, these songs would be tedious in any language.
