Songbook, Gunnstein Eyjolfsson, Icelandic Songs, sheet music, out of print

1936 Born Hofundar Winnipeg

In the world today, the province of Manitoba, Canada boasts the largest population of people of Icelandic heritage to be found beyond the borders of Iceland itself. This publication is a reflection of the longstanding affinity of expat Icelanders to their homeland.

All songs with the exception of one are in the Icelandic language. Four songs are vocal solos, two are arranged for male quartet and eight are arranged for SATB part singing.....please see thumbnails above for samples of each type of arrangement.

It appears that the songs are all originals by Gunnstein Eyjolfsson....musical settings of his own lyrics as well as lyrics penned by other Icelandic poets
