Arranged for double chorus (SSAATTBB) (1898), and published in 1899 with text in Latin, German, English, Danish (unspecified translators).

EG 150 applies it seems to both the original voice/piano version, and the later arrangement (see "The Songs of Edvard Grieg", p.169 et seq.).

From Foster: Schytte arrangement followed in 1905, Flesch (violin/piano) in 1914, Reinhard arrangements for various combinations with harmonium (harmonium, harmonium and violin, harmonium and cello) also followed.
