Misc. Comments

Songs and Verses was Nielsen's second collection of songs to texts by J.P. Jacobsen. It was published in 1893, one year after the first one. The exact time of composition cannot be established; that is, whether the collection took place concurrently with the first collection or only after the publication of Opus 4 in 1892.
