Extra Information The text for this song cycle comes from the Haugtussa poem cycle by Arne Garborg. Grieg chose 8 of the poems to include in his Op.67 'Haugtussa'. He also set others from Garborg's Haugtussa cycle, but didn't include them in the the published set. The EG 152 work number applies to all of the separate songs, but since there is no evidence Grieg intended them to be performed together (some are incomplete), they will be on separate pages under their individual titles.
