Gluntarne (The "Glunts")

Duets for baritone (The master) and bass (The Glunt) with piano accompaniment, composed during the 1840-ies in Uppsala by Gunnar Wennerberg (1817-1901), art historian,politician, minister of education, governor and - before all - poet and composer.
Those days, a glunt was a colloquialism for a peasant boy, like a bumpkin or lout, but maybe not as derogatory. Today, A Glunt specifically refers to one of the songs of this collection and The Glunt is precisely one of its twho characters.
