"We are searching for information concerning two sisters.

Maren Larsen (or Madsen,) born 15 Dec. 1847 in Voltofte, Flemlose, Odense to Lars Madsen and Ane Cathrine Johansdatter. Maren married Hans Christian Hansen on 15 Nov, 1879 in Voltofte. We don't knowe whether she stayed in Denmark or emigrated to the US as did most of her siblings.

Ane Cathrine (used Madsen or Larsen-Madsen) was born on 5 Feb, 1852 also in Voltofte. She married Niels Larsen (born 1 April 1845 in Assens) on 9 Nov, 1878 in Voldtofte. They had at least one child, Kristen, born 12 April, 1882. We believe we found Niels and Ane Cathrine in the 1911 census, in Voldtofte.

We would appreciate any information anyone can share about these sisters."

The Danish ghost - King Vlademar, who died in 1375 hunting in the forest at night.

The wild hunt is found all over Europe as a ghost story.

Captain Lutzow's Wild Chase (Lützows wilde jagd) (Weber)

Google Search: Lützows wilde jagd

Translated version of "Luetzows wild hunt
Theodor of grains
What shines there from the forest in the sunshine?
Hoer's more near and more near showers.
It pulls itself down in dark Reih'n,
And gellende horns sounds into it
And fulfill the soul with horror.
And if you associate the black ask:
That is Luetzows wild, bold hunt."

Lützows wilde Jagd

Lützows wilde Jagd
Theodor Körner
Was glänzt dort vom Walde im Sonnenschein?
Hör's näher und näher brausen.
Es zieht sich herunter in düsteren Reih'n,
Und gellende Hörner schallen darein
Und erfüllen die Seele mit Grausen.
Und wenn ihr die schwarzen Gesellen fragt:
Das ist Lützows wilde, verwegene Jagd.

music notes Weber 1814

WEBER, C. M. F. E. VON: "Weber started in February 1811 on an extended artistic tour, during which he made many influential friends, and on the 4th of June brought out Abu Hassan with marked success at Munich. His father died at Mannheim in 1812, and after this he had no settled home, until in 1813 his wanderings were brought to an end by the unexpected offer of an appointment as kapellmeister at Prague, coupled with the duty of entirely remodelling the performances at the opera-house.

The terms were so liberal that he accepted at once, engaged a new company of performers, and directed them with uninterrupted success until the autumn of 1816. During this period he composed no new operas, but he had already written much of his best pianoforte music, and played it with never-failing success, while the disturbed state of Europe inspired him with some of the finest patriotic melodies in existence.

First among these stand ten songs from Korner's Leyer und Schwerdt, including ' Vater, ich rufe dich,' and ' Liitzow's wilde Jagd ' ; and in no respect inferior to these are the splendid choruses in his cantata Kampf und Sieg, which was first performed at Prague, on the 22nd of December 1815.
Weber resigned his office at Prague on the soth of September * Spitta gives a different account ot the occurrence, and attributes the robbery to a servant."

Körner, Theodor: "Geboren am 23.9.1791 in Dresden; gestorben am 26.8.1813 in Rosenow bei Gadebusch/ Mecklenburg (gefallen) "

C. VON WEBER: "He now gave his close attention to the story of Der Freischutz, which he had previously meditated turning into an opera, and, with the assistance of Friedrich Kind, he produced an admirable libretto, under the title of Des Jagers Braut. No subject could have been better fitted than this to serve as a vehicle for the new art-form which, under Weber's skilful management, developed into the type of 'romantic opera"
