And now an arrangement of a song that, according to "Schwaben Kultur", has almost been forgotten.
The word "almost" is literally correct, because if it had been completely forgotten, I wouldn't have a post to upload ...
The title of the song is "Genügsamkeit" and once again I got the sheet music from the Lahrer Kommersbuch, which merely labelled the origin of the lyrics and melody as "Volksgut".
Our friend Google .... provides more information
The song seems to come from the "Ländle", i.e. from the Baden Württemberg region.
The source is written:

Verses 1,2,4,and 5: Böhringer Liederbüchle. Songs that are almost forgotten. (Ed.): Municipality of Römerstein and the "900th anniversary celebration" committee. Stuttgart n.d.

The song was recorded in the so-called "Kapff" collection in 1801 in Horgen near Rottweil ( A certain pastor Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Witschel apparently wrote the text, and an ominous C. Fischer set this text to music. Other sources ( bring into play Christian Gottlob Neefe, who is better known to us as a musician and whose song "Freiheit, die ich meine" is very similar to this melody.
This song was obviously very popular until the first decades of the 20th century.

The song is in odd time and once again invites you to "sway". It comes across as harmless, and my song movement, which I have "woven" under the melody, is just as harmless.
The fugue, whose coda is characterised by a certain drama, is a little more exciting - I just can't quite get out of my skin .....

Enough writing - have fun with my current composition!
