Composition: 1896.

Nielsen is said to have got the idea for Hymnus Amoris as early as 1891 when he was on his honeymoon in Italy with his wife, Anne Marie. Allegedly he was inspired by a painting by Titian and composed the work on the subject of love in all its aspects. He started working on the music during summer 1896, and according to his diary, finished it on 27 December.
