Work comment

The work is included in the cantata composed for the opening ceremony of the Gävle exhibition of 1901 (according to Gehrman's separate issue).

The song also exists in a setting for mixed choir a cappella. See separate post for that version.


Vaktat av de vita fjällar
och de mörka furor krans
vilar nu i vårens kvällar
Norrland i sin fägrings glans
