Is "Oppsang" or "Opsang" right? Worldcat has "Opsang". Translator programs hiccough on "Oppsang", suggesting that it may be wrong. Oppsang might be an offering-song, but Opsang isn't - it's a telling off, a dressing-down - the meaning is quite different (and leads to the question whether it's Grieg telling them off, or the telling-off that they're giving others? The text would clarify, of course.)
