This cache is dedicated to the

Carinthian "prince of songs"
Thomas Koschat

The tune (Poland, Forsaken, or Tyler) with which it is most often used is usually attributed to Thomas Koschat, who was born at Viktring, near Klagenfurt, Austria, on Aug. 8, 1845. Though he studied chemistry in Vienna, as a result of his experience as a court choir singer and a keen interest in music, he turned his efforts to a musical career. In 1871 he published several vocal quartets in the Carinthian dialect, and when these became quite successful he published around 100 more. In 1875 he organized a vocal quintet with four other singer. They toured Europe and America extensively, and their performances became extremely popular. In 1880, his "Liederspiel" Am Worthersee, which contained many of his favorite songs, was first performed in Vienna, and the melody used with Montgomery's "The Lord Is My Shepherd" was taken from the collection published about 1880 for this performance. It is actually believed to be a Carinthian folk tune which had been collected and arranged by Koschat around 1862 to be used with a secular love song "Verlassen bin i" ("Forsaken"). Koschat died in Vienna, Austria, on May 19, 1914.
