Jens Vejmand especially once very popular, even arranged into a separate orchestral light waltz and a recording made (this has been released in Danacord's Historic Nielsen Edition, volume 6, along with two recordings of the original voice and piano edition.)
Two volumes entitled Strofiske Sange were published in 1907. They contain seven songs composed at different times during 1901–07. - Sources
Could be performed in one concert (but then his songs are brief enough one can fill a CD with 35-odd of them nowadays..), but not perhaps meant to be. - ES
