A beautiful old Danish traditional song that I have always loved.

If I knew a female Danish singer here in iCompositions I would have left the singing to her. But I don't. So you will have to settle with me.

This song is so old that noone knows who wrote it. Lyrics are first time recorded in 1864 by who is now believed to be the author Fritz Andersen.

I have myself written the piano solo and the choir part.

The Danish world famous jazz bass player Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen (who we all miss now) made it famous again in his legendary version where the melody is played on the double bass. Here recorded with Kenny Drew on piano.

And the younger generation of Danish jazz musicians keep this version alive. Here with Chris Minh Doky

And this Norwegian singer Sissel sings beautifully in Danish
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0MCuVgFO2A

I have provided the lyrics in Danish and a translation to English.

Should a Danish/Scandinavian singer pop up, I would love to re-publish it with a female voice.

EDIT EDIT: My dear Canadian friend Stan Loh heard this and wrote English lyrics for the song and sings it. Don't miss is. http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=181363

Oh I love the tune...haunting!

Kenneth, would I be doing something bad if I ask if I could write the English lyric for this?

Your voice is wonderful. And the backing is perfect!

Thanks Stan.

It would be fantastic with English lyrics for this. I have searched the net and never found any.

I am not very good at writing lyrics. I can but it takes time. So it is would be great if you could write something pretty. You have the translation to start from

Hi Kenneth!

Lovely lovely!

Your vocal is strong and is well suited for this!

I can hear the 'age' on this tune...it's repetitive and repeating melody is most endearing!

CU!

Kenneth, this is my favourite vocal of yours! Really nicely enunciated and lovely tone. Great tune, too - as Elaine says, you can tell it's age old. Beautiful, and always a real pleasure to hear songs in non-English languages.

I was a bit nervous if a song in Danish would be well received. Danish is not the prettiest singing language because of the glottal stops and the hard stressed wovels or glottal fries that are important in our language. Details my Canadian wife curse about still after 15 years in Denmark smiley I tried to sing softly.

And as I am not a singer and never train my voice I do use both Melodyne and diffuse reverb to improve my voice. You do not want to hear the original smiley

Thanks for the support.

Actually I enjoyed the vox very much the proccessing supplies a good counterpoint to the melody. A bridge over time if you will.I played folk music for years and it's always good to hear new interpratations of traditional songs.

Timeless. Delightfully nostalgic. May be a old song but it's new to me, as I have never heard it before. Gentle & soothing waltz?. It's a beaut.
