  1. “När trollmor har lagt de elva små trollen, och bundit fast dem i svansen … ” That’s the sweetest song I remember from my childhood.

    Wow, you’re really multi-talented, CG!!!

    • I remember it from my childhood too. It’s a lovely tune. I also play two other lullaby’s for my son: one by Thorbjørn Egner and one that I think my mom made up. Thanks Reb.

  2. Very nice. This is the first time that I’ve heard of this piece. I’ve been trying to find out the history of the song; age, original composer, etc. I can’t find anything but I see that it has been quite popular for generations.

    • Thanks for the comment. Thanks to you I now know a bit more about this song. After some background checks I found out that it’s originally a Swedish song, written by Margit Holmberg and it was first published in 1943. The Swedish name of the song is «Trollmors vaggsång».
