    Hello Bach>Meer,

    The Dutch Folk Tune that Our Dear JSBach used is entitled "Ik ben gegroet van" - Literally: I'm in greetings of.

    Good luck in your further analysis.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
