Ihr Glocken von Marling (1874) S. 328

Ihr Glocken von Marling

Ihr Glocken von Marling,
Wie brauset ihr so hell;
Ein wohliges Läuten,
Als sänge der Quell.
Ihr Glocken von Marling,
Ein heil’ger Gesang
Umwallet wie schützend
Den weltlichen Klang.
Nehmt mich in die Mitte
Der tönenden Flut,
Ihr Glocken von Marling,
Behütet mich gut!

Bells of Marling

Bells of Marling,
How brightly you chime;
A pleasing sound
Like a babbling spring.
Bells of Marling,
A sacred song
Embraces and protects
The sounds of the earth.
Take me to your heart
Of your resounding flood,
Bells of Marling,
Watch over me well!

Composer

Franz Liszt (22 October 1811 – 31 July 1886) was a Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, music teacher, arranger and organist of the Romantic era. He was also a writer, a philanthropist, a Hungarian nationalist and a Franciscan tertiary.

A prolific composer, Liszt was one of the most prominent representatives of the New German School (Neudeutsche Schule). He left behind an extensive and diverse body of work which influenced his forward-looking contemporaries and anticipated 20th-century ideas and trends. Among Liszt's musical contributions were the symphonic poem, developing thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form, and radical innovations in harmony.
