Misc. Comments

  • This original was found only in the early 1990's. Until then the piece was exclusively sung in an arrangement made by Leevi Madetoja around 1920 (as the original was regarded too difficult and complex). The lyric text in manuscript is partially incomplete (sketched later by Madetoja), also the dynamics and other instructions are lacking.
