Navigation etc.

  • Jens Vejmand especially once very popular, even arranged into a separate orchestral light waltz and a recording made (this has been released in Danacord's Historic Nielsen Edition, volume 6, along with two recordings of the original voice and piano edition.)
  • Two volumes entitled Strofiske Sange were published in 1907. They contain seven songs composed at different times during 1901–07. - Sources
  • Could be performed in one concert (but then his songs are brief enough one can fill a CD with 35-odd of them nowadays..), but not perhaps meant to be. - ES
  • No.4: The song was composed in connection with Nielsen's collaboration with Johannes Jørgensen on the cantata Søvnen in 1903 (see Strophic Songs, Op.21, where it is no.1 in book 2.) The version with orchestra is dated between 1921 and 1922.
