I think the first time that I heard this Pete Seeger
song must have been in the mid-1950's as it was then often sung on radio by Marlene Dietrich and I believe it was something of a hit. I enjoy singing it both in German and in English.
The version I sing can be found in Die Mundorgel
, it provides the lyrics both in German and English, the German lyrics being attributed to a certain Max Colpet.
Britta Steenken selected an SAB arrangement of Where have all the flowers gone
to be sung by Das Trio
sometime in 2007. The arrangement by Alan Vincent can be found in Chor aktuell junior
published by Gustav Bosse Verlag
. The bass voice lyrics, my voice, are just a few "Doo doo-doo doo"s followed by 20 bars of "Ah"s needing deep lungs and lots of puff - especially if there is only one bass.
