In 1936, Oskar Lindberg heard a song at a church service in Gagnef (Dalecarlia). Based on the melody of the song, he wrote an organ piece which he called 'Gammal fäbodpsalm fran Dalarna'. A magnificent melody full of sadness and loss that maybe reflects the experiences of the people in the old peasant culture. Fäbod means a kind of old farm. At a meeting in Gagnefs missionary hall he heard a song that made a deep impression on him. For a radio broadcast in 1936 he arranged an organ piece based on this melody which became known as the Gammal fäbodpsalm från Dalarna. Today this is his best known and most frequently performed work.
