German can be extremely beautiful.  We all hear harsh WWII sounds in
films, but read or listen to Rilke.  German has sounds like the ch in Licht
and ich that are much softer than English, and the German L is further
back in the throat and sounds far more beautiful.

German sounds pretty good in The Magic Flute.
