Some of the finest songs by Oskar Merikanto (1868-1924), the most popular Finnish song composer, in one-volume edition. Merikanto composed some 150-160 songs in all that may well be termed part of Finland's national heritage. They are characterised by a folk-like style of composition - so much so in fact that many are frequently thought to be genuine folk songs. The melodies are in places of the type associated with Lieder, and often bear the dramatic brilliance of Italian opera. The Merikanto songs cover the entire gamut of human emotion and thought, in moods transformed in a flash from mystical meditation to nostalgic longing and utmost jubilation, yet always over an undercurrent of flowing melody

The edition includes the songs mainly in their original keys.
