Thanks mate. I agree with you about the Germans..they were just in a class of their own at the time.
Thanks Mick...don't really know how to to distinguish the English from the Brittish. Am looking up your suggestions. Oh, By the way, if u don't mind me asking, were Mozart and Handel English/British?
Ah, I'm just listening to Playford, Nottingham Castle, British/English, it's complicated, but after the union of the British Isles, there was, I think, some Act passed naming the place Great Briain. M and H, H considered British, M, Austrian?
cuttler: Mozart was German. Handel was born in Germany, but was British.
Ah, Mozart's birthplacem Salzberg, Austria, Bavaria, independent state? Now, I beleve it may be part of Germany, It ain't important, it's the Ausrian/Germany part of the world.
Heh, I say Mozart was German because he self-identified as German. It was not Austria then, but the Holy Roman Empire. Many Austrians before World War II identified as German. He referenced Germany as his beloved fatherland (geliebtem Vaterland).
Thanks guys for the information..I greatly appreciate it
