- In the original publication, the subtitle is Smaa Claveerstykke, and there are only words to 16 bars of Jule-Klokkerne (Andantino, Barn Jesus i en Krybbe laa). Further, Grove Music lists this as a piano piece. Although Gade may not have intended it to be sung as such, it has been tagged as both piano pieces, and a vocal work.
