||Early 20th century
||Voice and piano
||These folk songs were also arranged for violin and piano and published by Apostol simultaneously with the solo song versions (see above). The musical content is the same, though in some places the violin part goes one octave higher. The melodies are based on tunes which Kuula collected during the summer of 1907 in South Ostrobothnia, the landscape of his heart. No.5 was also arranged for male choir (see Op.4 No.4) and No.12 for string orchestra.
