The Hastings College Choir performs Robert Schumann's setting of Emanuel Geibel's romantic-era depiction of gypsy life. Prof. Ruth Moore at the piano; Dr. Fritz Mountford conducts. Sung in German.

In English, a condensed rendering of the seven verses: An encampment of a wandering gypsies is discovered in the forest shadows. Around the campfire they listen to ancient songs and tales, and soon begin to dance. In the quiet following their wild dancing, they dream of a long-lost homeland. As the day dawns, dreams vanish and the wanderers depart.

Hastings College, founded in 1882, is a private, four-year liberal arts institution affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The college is located in Hastings, Nebraska.
