Nielsen had barely completed the Helios overture during a stay in Greece in the spring of 1903, before he began on the new piece, Søvnen. The work on the choral piece did not come easily to him, for six months later he had not got much further. During autumn 1903, he seems to have had a turning-point. The piece was finished in November the following year. See more about this work at The Royal Library
