Misc. Comments

According to a telegram (6 November 1909) from Nielsen to Jeppe Aakjær, author of the play Ulvens Søn, the two songs were finished shortly before the first performance at Aarhus Theatre 14 November 1909. The orchestration of the songs was worked out even later since the extant full score is end-dated 11 November.
