On the Counter
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
On the Counter, as with many of the songs composed to Ives’s own text, is one of his meditations on the power of old tunes remembered, deftly woven out of song-quotations. In a footnote to 114 Songs Ives wrote: ‘Though there is little danger of it, it is hoped that this song will not be taken seriously, or sung, at least, in public.’
