Work comment

According to the Svenskt Biografiskt Lexikon (a Swedish biographical dictionary), the music is most likely a for the most part unintentional quote from movement no. 2 of Beethoven's Sonata Pathétique.

This song also exists in a setting for male choir a cappella (T.T.B.B.). See separate post for that version.
