Misc. Comments

This patriotic song became very popular in Belgium at the beginning of the Great War. On January 18, 1915, the song was banned by the German occupying authorities, and the composer had to flee to Paris. More details can be found on the back covers of La valse rousse and Belgique et France by Willem Jan Paans.
