Misc. Comments

  • The last collection from these years to contain a selection of Nielsen's 'folkelige' (folk-like) song production is Ti danske Smaasange of 1926. The songs seem to have been composed at various times between 1923 and 1926. Nine of them were published in arrangements for equal voices in Melodier til Sangbogen 'Danmark (CNW Coll.19) before they were included in Ti danske Smaasange.
