Lars Karlsson: Toccata, variations and fuga for organ
based on the Swedish hymn "Den blomstertid nu kommer"
Probably of folk song origin, this Swedish hymn was first time published in the 1695 Swedish Hymnal. The Finnish version "Jo joutui armas aika" is traditionally sung in the end of the school year. The rhythmic toccata followed by the joyful variations and an uplifting fuga is based on this tune which strongly associates with the beginning of summer.
