Da Capo Choir – Visa från Utanmyra (Song from Utanmyra)

Awesome arrangement of this old song, Visa från Utanmyra (traditional), arr. by Henrik Bergion.

Sound gets better with &fmt=18 after the video URL, as usual.

Da Capo, Gunilla Frödén cond.
Henrik Bergion trio

Art by
Einar Norelius (1900-1985) and Nikolai Astrup (1880-1928).

I thank the musicians! and hope they won’t mind 🙂

The lyrics by Olof von Dalin (1708-1763) goes:

O tysta ensamhet,
var skall jag nöjen finna?
Bland sorg som ingen vet,
skall mina dar försvinna.
En börda tung som sten
mig möter vart jag går.
Bland tusen finns knappt en,
som kärlek rätt förstår.

Oh silent solitude
Where can I find joy?
Among unknown sorrows
my days shall pass away
A burden heavy as stone
confronts me where ever I go
There is hardly one among thousands
that truly understands love
