Text: Vilhelm Krag
"Jeg lå ved sjøen" was commissioned by Kilden Vokalensemble with support from Arts CouncilNorway (det Norsk kulturråd), to celebrate the 150th anniversary of poet Vilhelm Krag's birth. Kilden Vokalensemble premiered it in November 2021 at Grim kirke in Kristiansand together with the seven other works commissioned for the occasion.
Originally written for 16 voices, this version for 12 voices was made for Kilden's performance at Risør Kammermusikkfest in June 2023 (with support from The Norwegian Society of Composers' "Støtte til bearbeiding av verk").
