The exact date of composition is unknown. The texts by Ludvig Holstein were published in 1895 (one of the poems had been published separately in 1894, however). It seems probable that Nielsen started composing the music shortly afterwards. He received money from the publishers for delivering the music in March 1896, and the songs were published in 1897.
