A second volume, A GRIEG SONG ANTHOLOGY, which contains the full piano accompaniments and is coordinated with FORTY-FIVE SONGS OF EDVARD GRIEG, is also available from Leyerle Publications.

      Professor Ellingboe prepared this exciting book, amost from its inception, in close association with Dr. Dag Schjelderup-Ebbe, the eminent Grieg scholar. The principal purpose for the book, although there are many secondary uses, is to make Grieg’s wonderful songs accessible, in their original language, to English speaking singers.
