During his second American tour (1938) Paul Hindemith wrote numerous songs for musical amateurs, including traditional children's songs for American schoolbooks, amongst others. The songs provided with individual titles by Hindemith were published for the first time in 2009 under the working title of 9 Short Songs for American School Songbooks in the Hindemith Complete Edition (PHA 803). The two songs 'Prayer for a Pilot' and 'Young and Old' are now available as separate editions for the first time. 'Young and Old' (text: Charles Kingsley) deals with the timeless theme of growing old, in a humorous, yet pensive manner. The two short, easy to sing choral settings are a valuable addition to the repertoire.
