Subject: Dansk Lyrics to Om Sommeren ....

Hello:

I'm looking for the Danish lyrics to a song by recorded by Haugaard & Høirup a few years ago titled "Om Sommeren" It's supposedly based on an old poem. My Danish is not good enough to pick up all the lyrics. Also any hints on the chords or tabs would be nice. I have the song partially worked out but would like to play it close to the original.

thanks,

Med vennligst hilsen,

Val

Do you have any idea what "Om Sommeren" means? Babel Fish doesn't do Danish, or any other Scandinavian language.

In the collection ballads shown below, many ballads have the words "Om Sommeren" printed at the end of the first and the last verses, as if it meant "chorus" or "refrain."

Grundtvig, Sven, Axel Olrik, Hakon Harald Grüner-Nielsen, Erik Abrahamsen, and Hjalmar Thuren. Danmarks gamle folkeviser. København: Samfundet til den danske literaturs fremme, [etc.], 1853.

I also get some hits on "Om Sommaren."

Meg alerted me to this thread. Sorry, I can't help. I tried looking for the lyrics but found nothing.

However, Haugaard & Høirup have a website and there are contact details there. Maybe you could ask their help?

The song is Trad, I did find that piece of information, at any rate.

Best of luck with your hunt.

Best wishes,

Bente

here is one place i have gotten help for scandinavian language issues
http://www.lexicool.com
they have a program which allows you to type nordic alphabet characters

and from this site http://www.ordbogen.com/
summer - We went to England last summer
om sommeren » in the summer - She goes to the beach every day in the summer
til sommer » this summer - She moves to the capital this summer
sidste sommer » last summer - She left her boy friend last summer
en svale gør ingen sommer » one swallow does not make a summer - One swallow does not make a summer, he said sadly
have en god sommer » have a nice summer - She asked him if he had had a nice a summer

If you search mudcat for a thread where we discussed Danish songs
Den Toppede Høne (The Crested Hen) (Bondepigen)
you might find lonks to the Danish culture ministry folk music
http://www.folkemusik.dk ---here is their english page..
http://www.folkemusik.dk/view.php3?SectionID=635&ContentID=2512&ParentIDs=

and the web site for Haugaard & Høirup is: http://www.hhduo.dk/
and you can listen here: http://www.cdroots.com/go-hh3.html

I may have this recording, but, alas, it is in storage.
let us know what you find~

this is from a genealogy site where some folks were discussing this song: (and others)

This song is DgF No. 516. The text from the book sounds close enough to the recording, so here it is:

Jeg ved saa dejlig en Urtegaard

Jeg ved mig saa dejlig |: en Urtegaard :|,
paa hver en Side i Roser hun staar.
   |: Om Sommeren :|

Hun er alt som det |: stolteste Kloster, :|
derinde vokser saa mange smaa Bloster.

Derinde vokser saa |: fager en Lind :|
derinde spiller baade Hjort og Hind.

Derinde vokser en |: Rose saa rød, :|
derinde synger en Nattergal sød.

Der rinder ej Vand, men den |: klareste Vin, :|
i Aften gaar jeg til Kæresten min.

Den Vise, jeg her for |: eder kvæder, :|
er om den Jomfru, mit Hjerte glæder.
   |: Om Sommeren :|
