Question about Per Tyrssons Döttar I Vänge
« am: Dezember 17, 2005, 08:09:57 Nachmittag »
I'm a bit confused about one part in the song Per Tyrssons Döttar I Vänge:

Now, after Per Trysson slays the two oldest robers, he asks the third one who his father and mother is.  The third one answers that Per Trysson and Fru Karin are his parents (according to the translation I have.)  So were the robbers the brothers of the three girls, then?

Maybe the translation I have isn't very clear.

Also, on this part: "Per Tyrsson went to the smithy and forged himself iron round his waist."  Does this mean that he placed the iron around the remaining robber and made said robber build the church?  Like I said, the translation is kind of...rough, I think.  Either that, or I'm just being dense.

Either way, a little clarity would help.

Thanks!

Yeah, isn't it written in 'Olde Swedish'?

Or did I just make that up? :lol:

It's pretty old Swedish, and Mathias pronounces some of the words in a really special dialect, but what is so hard to understand?

At least I'm not the only one confused!  I don't feel quite as stupid now.  :P

Maybe someone can convince Matthias to join the board and he can fill us in?  (and by us, I mean me.  Heeeee! :D)

Great song, even with a drum machine (which I loathe).. I love the bass intro tho, kinda reminds me of Jethro Tull's 'Bouree'... 8)

Sorry Stefan...  :oops: I thought it was a drum machine on that one song, because it has a sharp, synthetic sound to my ears & more of a simple & sparse, or "blocky" drum pattern if you will... at least, when compared to the rest of your songs....  I still love the song though!   :D

As a matter of fact, I happened to think that "Clarion Call" had synthetic drums first time I listened to it. Then I realized that Karsten is one heck of a drummer.
