Vocal for Sale - & Also Free!
Art Song "Hytten" by Edvard Grieg

Vocal for sale (with the piano accompaniment!) and also FREE vocal sheet music for your students.

"Hytten" (The Hut, or cottage) is a lively and old-fashioned romantic song about the sufficiency of love, surpassing the need for luxury or even the need for more than just a plain hut in a bare landscape.

This lovely art song works for male or female voices.  Here is Per Vollestad:

Edvard Grieg's pretty "Hytten" is offered here in the keys of C, D, Eb, E, and F.  The range is low in the first two lines, then jumps up high... a singer needs an octave plus a fifth.

Here is what the vocal line looks like (scroll down the page for the download links to the 5 different keys):

Edvard Grieg's art song

No, this song's lyrics are NOT originally in English.  Grieg's setting is of a poem by Hans Christian Anderson - Danish is very close to Norwegian, and side-by-side, the texts are almost identical. 

I decided to translate the poem, because I wanted to sing it for a local audience, and despite our town being known as "Little Norway" (with a sister city in "the old country"), there are no remaining old-timers who speak the language.  To me, imparting the sense of the lyrics was more important for this crowd. 

If you are interested in singing the original lyrics, they can be found at the end of the piano accompaniment edition, below.  For pronunciation, listen carefully to the singers in the videos I have placed on this page.

And here is the standard accompaniment, with English translation, and the original Danish text on page 3.  I show pages 1, 2 and 3 in three different keys:

So why should you buy Edvard Grieg's "Hytten" arrangements from me, aside from the fact that it is very hard to find, and there are no other English translations available?

I give you permission to make UNLIMITED COPIES, for YOUR STUDENTS ONLY.

Hytten is available immediately as a digital download onto your computer.  In 5 keys!

You don't have to download any new software into your computer in order to download this PDF. I don't know about you, but I hate clogging up my computer with yet another program I didn't know I needed. You just need a version of Adobe Acrobat or another PDF reader, which all computers come with. If you DON'T have Adobe Acrobat or a similar program, then you couldn't download any of my other PDFs either.

The notes and lyrics are a LOT bigger than the copies currently available in music stores, making reading easier!

Speaking of reading the music, you can print this music on any kind of paper you want, and thus avoid the glare of shiny pages (so irritating for accompanists!).

Write and make notes all over these copies, in red and other colors, without feeling you are spoiling your music for posterity. I dislike messing up my music books, but learning the piece is always the first priority. These printouts will make great working copies.

Do you need a letter of permission in order to use this music at a competition? Write me through the Contact Me form, and I will email you a personal letter.

I give you permission to make UNLIMITED COPIES legally (for your students only). When you need music, you usually need it NOW.  Your accompanist, your soloist-student... let them have this music without fear of copyright infringement.   And help them learn respect for the musician's trade!

Paypal, the payment system I use, is a secure and recognized payment system. You can pay by credit or debit card, or your bank account. E-Junkie delivers the PDF document, working as a partner with PayPal... your purchase is guaranteed.

What are you waiting for?  This is an ADORABLE song!

Again, this art song is a quick study, with lovely images of the sea, the shore... and "two who hold each other dear."

Liz:
Hello - I just want to say THANK YOU so much for the duet version of Oh Holy night (in Bb too!), which is great, as I have two students at school that are going to sing this in a concert in 3 weeks.  With not much time and no budget, it is so nice to find an arrangement!   Thank you.

Krista:
Thank you thank you thank you!! I have recently started my own vocal studio, and though I have studied music education for years in college, a private studio is a daunting task for me. Your site has made everything seem so simple and straightforward and has helped me to really get started. It is so comprehensive and well put together. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge so that music can be shared everywhere. :)
Dana:
Good for you! Yes, I know just what you mean. Every new endeavor requires a little bit of chutzpah -- not to say just brazening it out a bit, because you just can't be an expert at anything until you've done it for a while. We  teachers have to learn how to teach... and you have to start somewhere.
