Elia, Anthony J.

Die Briefmarke (“The Postage Stamp”) is a song composed with German lyrics for men's choir, based on the comedic poem by writer Joachim Ringelnatz (1883-1934). "Die Briefmarke" is the second Ringelnatz piece in this set of "Fünf neue deutsche lieder" ~~ “Five New German Songs for Male Chorus” is a collection of choral works written for the Indianapolis Liederkranz in April 2014.

German musical societies, Sängerchor, Männerchor, and other singing groups are encouraged to perform these new works.
