Do you have the Mennonite songboo,k known as Gesangbuch 105, first published in Prussia in the 1700's? It is still used and avaialbe with over 700 songs in German, but without notes. The title is "Gesangbuch--Eine Sammlung geistlicher Lieder"
Where can it be purchased, and for what price? Also, do you happen to know how it acquired the "105" nickname?
We have the contents listed of some Mennonite hymnals - "Gesangbuch: eine Sammlung geistlcher Lieder zur allgemeinen Erbauung" published in Scottdale, Pennsylvania in 1918. (https://hymnary.org/hymnal/GSLE1918). It's predecessor was "Gesangbuch in welchem ein Sammlung geistreicher Lieder befindlich" published in Elkhart, Indiana in 1880 (https://hymnary.org/hymnal/GSL1880). These were indexed by the Hymn Society as part of the Dictionary of North American Hymnology but they have not been edited by Hymnary staff or volunteers yet.
The database only has four items listed from GSLE1918. GSL1880, on the other hand, has hundreds of songs listed and may well be complete, albeit unedited.
GSLE1918 includes the contents of GSL1880 plus the 4 items. DNAH only indexed the new content in some cases where there was a new edition.
Interesting. Is that noted somewhere visible, or does one just have to know... ?
