The Old High German and Middle High German Hildebrandslied
Recorded in Austria in 2006, the OHG and MHG versions of the Hildebrandslied are performed to a live audience by that gift to medieval music performance in German, Eberhard Kummer. The young Hadubrand meets, unknown to him, his own father Hildebrand on the field of battle in the shorter fragmentary OHG poem; the story is somewhat expanded in the longer MHG version.
