The work was composed for the opening of the public swimming baths in Copenhagen's sports park on 1 November 1930. Nielsen re-used the melody to N.F.S. Grundtvig's Morgenhanen atter gol, which he had already composed in 1926. It is unclear whether it was Nielsen himself who arranged the four-part version of the melody.
