Composition: 1916.

After finishing his fourth symphony (CNW 28) and while working on songs for the collections Nye Melodier til de Nyere Sangtekster i Johan Borups Danske Sangbog (CNW Coll. 12) and En Snes danske Viser 2den Samling (CNW Coll. 11), Nielsen composed music for the play Shakespeare. The following year, he re-used the melody for the fifth and last song in his Kantate ved Grosserer-Societetets Hundredaarsfest (CNW 111).
