A traditional south German polka. The title would imply a tune that was played when the herds are taken up the mountain in late spring. Thought it might be fun to add a tune (and practice my ABC notation). Personally I’ve enjoyed hearing the many differences between dance tunes, across countries and continents.
Himmelfart means ascension,
hence Christi Himmelfart & Maria Himmelfart, both public holidays in Germany

Gott im himmel not just another flippin’ polka but a German one too! Anyone for a little ITM perhaps?
