Yes, that's right. :) Just the lyrics quoted in the first post. They will be added to the beginning of the English version.

Well, I had a bit of trouble reaching the high notes, I have to admit (a tad bit out of my comfort zone :shock: ). I certainly hope I will have some support from the German speaking community out there! :D

Would be nice to get some men's voices, too. And of course still more women's voices :)

Danke, Du aber auch :clap: Und weißt Du was? Ich höre da gar keinen Akzent! (Nicht, dass mich das stören würde, wenn da einer wäre... ;) )

Jetzt, wo Du das erwähnst...ja, das stimmt, der Akzent ist tatsächlich viel weniger hörbar! Darauf habe ich absolut nicht geachtet. Wahrscheinlich kommt das daher, dass bei Liedern vorgegeben ist, wie man die Worte und Sätze auszusprechen - zu singen und zu betonen hat; und das macht es natürlich viel einfacher. Bei Texten fällt es mir bedeutend schwerer, weil ich die korrekte Artikulation von Buchstaben, Wörtern und Sätzen nicht beherrsche. Ein Hochdeutsch-Kurs steht bei mir schon ganz oben auf der Liste...

Du hast viel mehr Klang in der Stimme, sie tönt kräftiger, voller und sicherer; und man hört keine "Übergänge" von der normalen Stimme zur hohen Stimme (die bei mir ziemlich schwach und dünn tönt) - scusa, das ist so laienhaft ausgedrückt, doch Du weisst bestimmt, was ich damit meine. :mrgreen:

Ich stütze ;) Und genau dieser Übergang hat mich jahrelang gefuchst.

Da stecken einige Jahre Arbeit drin in dieser Voll- und Sicherheit, da brauchst Dir echt nichts denken und vergleichen solltest Du Dich auch nicht damit. Deine Stimme ist schön, der Rest ist Technik, die erlernbar ist. Aber ich finde, das braucht es doch gar nicht, es gibt ja Mikrofone und Verstärker inzwischen. Und mir gefällt gerade die Sanftheit in Deiner Stimme.
