Program Notes

The Jutish Medley, as its name implies, is a succession of tunes hailing from Jutland [on the Danish peninsula]. The first, Choosing the Bride, voices a young man’s dilemma in choosing between two sweethearts -- one rich, one poor -- and his reasons for finally taking the poor one. The second melody employed is a sentimental Dragoon’s Farewell, supposed to be sung by the dragoon just before setting out for the wars. The third is a very archaic religious song entitled The Shoemaker from Jerusalem. The final ditty, Hubby and Wifey, is a quarreling duet in which the wife brings her obstreperous husband to his senses by means of a spinning spindle skillfully applied to his forehead.

The Jutish Medley appears to have originally been gathered for piano, but was included in Grainger's Danish Folksongs Suite in 1930-31.
