In Praise of Lofty Judgement (Lob Des Hohen Versandes) come from Das Knabem Wunderhorn

This song is about a singing contest between the cuckoo and the nightingale. Of course there has to be a judge and the cuckoo chooses the donkey because he has big ears, so he must hear well, something that is an asset when judging music. The birds sing and the donkey finds the song of the nightingale far too complicated, making his head spin if not giving him a headache. The song of the cuckoo includes thirds and fourths and fifths that the donkey finds simple and good.
