Beethoven (arr.) : O, who sits so sadly : Voice and Keyboard
Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven (arr.) (1770 - 1827)
Lyrics: T. Toms
"The black joke" had, as a remarkably scabrous song, been in existence for a century by the time Beethoven was commissioned to provide an arrangement. This is one of its last and most implausible appearances as a song, although it continued (and continues) to exist as a regimental march under the name "The sprig of Shillelagh", and as a dance in various morris traditions.
Voice and Keyboard: 0.10 euro for unlimited copies
