Allspel-Orknøy

An ancient song from Orknøy:

  • Hymn to St Magnus (“Nobilis humilis”, from Codex Upsalensis, ca. 1280), as it was taught by Kåre and Tove Lie and Maja Marcussen at the first NHM in Lund (click here to listen to a recording of this song on Kåre’s website).
    In Sweden, there exists a children song which exploits the same melodic motif, with the poetic lyrics “Till Paris, till Paris ska vi rida på en gris“.
