Easter flower! what would you here?

Anthology of songs and hymns by N.F.S. Grundtvig

By Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig

Contributions by: John Irons

There are creative writers and thinkers who have created words and expressions that have a long life in history. One of these is Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872), who is perhaps best known internationally for his modern ideas about lifelong learning and a new type of school - the folk high school for young people, as well as adults - that was to give people the possibility of developing freely and using their abilities for the benefit of their national community. This book features a selection of Grundtvig's well-known hymns and songs. These are among the most powerful of his entire work, marked by an artistic breadth that is immediately sensed. The present English-language collection - translated by the poet John Irons in collaboration with the poet Klaus Hoeck - can be sung at everyday gatherings of people wishing to express themselves about what is most important in human existence: faith, hope, and love.
