Alternative title :"There is a Reaper Called Death"
"Es ist ein Schnitter, heisst der Tod" ("There is a reaper called death", even the "Grim Reaper" or just "reaper song"), is a German folk song of the 17th Century, first published as a Broadside ballad in Regensburg in 1638, in the middle of the Thirty Years War. The original words extend the common metaphor of death as the reaper over 16 unremittingly grim verses, in keeping with the grim times in which it was written. The title translates as "Death, the Reaper", and the first verse is:

"There is a reaper, his name is Death / His power comes from God above / Today he sharpens his knife, it's cutting much better already / Soon he will scythe through, we can only suffer it / Look out, beautiful little flower."

It goes downhill from there.

Although originally written for Chorus, I created this arrangement by adding a Flute and arranging for Flute and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
