Work comment

According to some sources (also at the Musik- och teaterbiblioteket) this song was composed by F. Werner, whereas other state H. (Hildegard or Heinrich) Werner. The Swedish encyclopedia 'Nordisk familjebok' writes that although Hildegard Werner composed songs, the serenade quartet 'Bort i rymden skyar tåga' was not one of them.


1. Bort i rymden skyar tåga,
skimrande av aftonglöd

2. Bort i rymden hör jag klinga,
andetoner uti skyn
