Song: Auf'n Öckal steht 's Hüttal (My hut on the hill)

The Minz Hiking Trail leads us from this resting spot above the village up to the Borstadl Farm. We look back at the magnificent church of Oberau and the village centre, which fell victim to a fire in 1719. How many lovers have met here on this romantic spot? Most alpine folk songs are about love, the hunt, life on the high pastures and the beautiful landscape.

 

The "Afelder Dreigsang", a trio, is a typical line-up for these songs in our area. “The bass is often added to the two female voices as a third voice; Mixed harmonies are only performed by quartets with an intervention of a simple tenor, in a few valleys, where good singing is customary as in the Wildschönau”. F.F. Kohl 1899
