Dear Mark32646, Do you have the original recording? I am curious about the translations McCormack is singing - is there any attribution? Thankyou for posting !!

The only information I can find is as follows: Organ Grinder, The (Der Leiermann) (The Hurdy Gurdy Man)("Der Leiermann") (from (Wilhelm Müller/Franz Schubert, D. 911, No. 24) CVE 49213-1, -2, -3 (partial matrix) (28 November 1928)

Not good. Its not the "real" Schubert in any other language than German. And Mc Cormick was no "Liedersänger." He was much better when he sang Irish folk songs.

Take the point about the original language ... but you CAN understand this instantaneously. Thanks to JM's clarity.

I don't like these English language versions, they lose their haunting depth.

Probably Teddy Schneider.

Do we know who arranged the piano parts for orchestra?

This is one McCormack selection that I've never seen on any CD reissue.  It is truly a haunting and powerful piece that I'm proud to have in my own collection.
