Internationally named Obernkirchen Children's Choir, in Germany named Schaumburger Märchensänger. The choir gained international success in 1953 when a BBC radio broadcast of the choir's winning performance at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod turned the song (The Happy Wanderer) into an instant hit. On January 22, 1954, the song entered the UK singles chart and stayed on the chart-only a Top 12 at the time-for 26 non-consecutive weeks, peaking at Number 2 (for five consecutive weeks).
In 1953 BBC Radio aired the choir's winning performance, performing "The Happy Wanderer" at Llangollen International Eisteddfod, an annual arts festival in North Wales. The event was witnessed by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas who described the girls as "Pigtailed Angels" and the broadcast turned the cheerful song into the great sing-along of the year
