Composition: 1917.

In 1917, the Chamber of Commerce (Grosserer-Societetet) commissioned Nielsen to compose a festive cantata with a text by Valdemar Rørdam. Details were laid down at a meeting in March 1917. Nielsen laid aside the composing of the piano piece, Thema med Variationer (CNW 87) , while concentrating on the cantata which had its first performance on 27 April 1917. The melody for the song Hymne til Danmark (CNW 226) was re-used from the music to the play, Shakespeare (CNW 15) , which Nielsen had composed the previous year.
