Die daz rehte singen stoerent, der ist ungelîche mêre danne die ez gerne hoerent.
Those who drown out the good singing –
there's many more of them
than those who want to hear it.
"Owê, hovelîchez singen", line 17; translation from Frederick Goldin German and Italian Lyrics of the Middle Ages (New York: Anchor, 1973) p. 127.
