Compositions by Carl Frei
By Ingmar Krause

[ Ref. Wallace Venable in 140404 MMDigest --

Hello MMD,  I held off on today's 140404 MMD, as I was sure someone
would correct this already; alas, no, so let me be the one:

> Spaanse Ruitermars - Spanish Riding March

It's "March of the Spanish Riders", more freely translated as
"March of the Spanish Cavalry".

> Gouden Hartserenade - Gold Heart Serenade

Even in English this would be the "Golden Heart Serenade".

> Raupenbahnmars - Raupenbahn March

The "Caterpillar Ride March".

> De Negentigermars - The Nineteenth March or possibly
> 19th Regiment/Brigade/District March

Neither! It's the "90er March".

> Serenade Nr. 1. - Serenade No. 1.

There are more Serenades (e.g. we have a Serenade No.10) -- how many
of them are Carl Frei?  Maybe someone more knowledgeable can chirp in...
