Ich fahr dahin
Last updated: 02.02.20
This is a really ancient folksong taken from the Lochamer Liederbuch (1452). The version I sing can be found in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 3. This is a beautifully romantic song of separation, love and eternal constancy which I really enjoy singing and it is a real delight to accompany with my concertina.
Since writing the above sometime in 1998, it was even a greater pleasure in 2002 to be singing it under the title of Abschiedslied (in a Johannes Brahms vocal quartet arrangement) as a member of the Studiooper der Universität Bremen under the direction of Oliver Rosteck at the Schönbergiade 02 and Ceilidh 2002 in June of that year.
