Carl Orff [circa 1930]

Gassenhauer nach Hans Neusiedler (1536), commonly known as Gassenhauer is a short piece from Carl Orff's 'Schulwerk'. As the full title indicates, it is either an arrangement of, or inspired by, a much older work by the lutenist Hans Neusiedler from 1536. It (along with several other pieces) is in fact credited to Orff's longtime collaborator, Gunild Keetman, on at least one recent release of the Schulwerk”
