www.tomahawkfilms.com

They do Military Band Music from 1933 onwards, and yes there are a few regarding the Nazi era (Horst Wessel Lied for one), but most of the German Military music used during that Nazi era was already being played during the Weimar period prior to the rise of the NSDAP.

Take, for instance, the PanzerLied - shown in the film Battle of the Bulge, being sung by actors dressed as Panzer officers - not a word about the Nazis, but a song about how the panzers fought through snow and ice etc.

The site states that it is not a political site, but basically sells Military music from a certain era.

Your other alternative is to contact the German Military attache and get some info from him/her ?

:)

I seem to remember Spitting Imäge doing a version of that söng just before the Töries re-won the election. And there was me thinking it was the official Töry Party Anthem! o_O

If you know exactly what you are looking for, a pretty good site is: http://www.brandenburghistorica.com/ddrmusic.html

If you need to browse a bit and don't mind MP3 quality, you could start at: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=yWtZNLIwkA0&feature=user . OK, there are some Nazi offerings scattered amongst them like "Am Adolf Hitler Platz" and "Das Horst Wessel Lied" but they aren't compulsory. We forget, or are encouraged to, that many German and Austrian marches pre-date the Third Reich aberration. The ones that are of that era are predominantly Military in the best traditions; "Das U-Boot Lied", "Das Engelandlied; http://uboat.net/special/songs/ . Many others are derived from traditional Folk and, particualy, hunting songs.

Glücklich jagen!
