Like many Romantic poems, Der Knabe im Moor (“The Boy in the Bog”) works as a song, and even to this day, the poem is, at least with some fringe musicians, popular enough to receive an arranged recording here and there.

I have collected some of the finer musical arrangements for you – mind you that I do not know much about the respective bands outside of this, though, asI am not particularly interested in the neo-pagan musical scene, or whatever genre those songs are supposed to belong. Still, I have to give the bands that their respective treatments of Droste’s poem are pretty remarkable. 🙂
