There were a song from "Lord of the Rings", but that was saturday at the concert. She was a singer from either Iceland or Færøerne (sorry, can´t spell that in english).
Sunday at the service there was the choir MPIRI from Færøerne and the Greenlandic choir AAVAAT, who sang.
The soprano, Inger Dam-Jensen, sang the uppevoice in the "uropførelse" of the suite "Alle mine kilder", perhaps it was that suite you heard?
No, it was From the Lord of the Rings. It may have been Saturday, I didn't watch that show on TV, only in clips. - Things are just beginning to get blurred for me.
Do you know the title of that song? Then I'll YouTube it and hear if that is the song in my head.

I will tell you the title of the song if you tell me what those clips at the farm with the old woman and the straight faced man were about! They made everyone laugh except me, who was watching on blessed DR who would be sainted if they hired you Muhler to create English subtitles!
The song from LOTR was the Prophecy, BTW, as I know you will tell me what the joke was !

These little clips were satirical of the Danish Dialects. I don't think that anyone could understand what she was saying and therefor "the translation" by the man was soooooo funny, because it didn't made sense
The two men are a wellknown satirical duo in DK called "Rytteriet" - "The Cavalry".
I went to ser their show at one time and I laughed so much that my cheeks were sore hours after

Mange tak! I am glad I was not the only one not understanding, then!Your beautifully eloquent prime minister also made reference to Danish dialects in her table speech, so that perhaps these clips were shown at the concert because HM Queen Margrethe is a connoisseur of Danish dialectology! BTW, do I understand it is your birthday? If so, very best wishes on your special day!:)

Here's a link that'll confirm it was in the family all along:

Thanks for that Baroness.

Makes one wonder as to why it's taken so long for it to be seen again being that it remained within the family.

It makes little to no sense imo and to be honest, it rather annoys me how occasionally, royals will retire significant pieces of jewellery for decades for what appears to be no apparent reason.

Thanks, FasterB

As for the dialect bit. That was genuine Southern Jutlandic dialect.
She wasn't talking nonsense, I could understand about half of what she said.

Off topic I know, but nevertheless part of the cultural diversity of DK.
Until 1864 Denmark had always been a multi lingual realm. With languages like Faraose, Icelandic, Greenlandic (east and west), Norwegian and German heard spoken. Depending on the period.
Not to mention Danish. A Dane from what is now south west Sweden would have had huge problems understanding a Dane from Northern Jutland.
One of the reasons for the Second Schleswigan War in 1864 was the impementation of Danish as the first language in the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein. - They didn't like it, as about 75 % of the population there was ethnically German.



Subtitles for Gerry.
You take the bottom-cloth (she actually said ass-cloth. I'm merely translating...) from you coat-pocket and wipe your belly (she said buttocks).
It's none of your business why.
Shut up!
Who said that?

Because their presence wasn't necessary.

Just as the Dutch, Luxembourgish, Spanish and Belgian royal families weren't invited.

Jubilee's in Denmark tend to be a purely Scandinavian affair, and by way of family relations, the GRF are naturally invited.

She was the one whose straps I half feared, half hoped would break. - A brave lady and something of a risktaker, eh?

It pays to be the wife of an Icelandic President it would seem And kudos to Dorrit, she always looks the part. That her family are jewellers would help with the bling too I'm sure!

As a woman I'm probably viewing this differently, but Muhler .. I'd be surprised if it's as much as a C-cup ..........

Well, it sure looked precarious from the camera angle I watched them... I mean, her from last night.

It hurts my eyes to once again see our president looking "lovely" like a sack of potatoes in every picture. Not only does she have a sour expression on her face but would it kill her to wear a corset or girdle of some kind..? A good posture would do wonders as well. The gown is something she's worn many times before. Thankfully we'll soon have a new president (maybe that's why she looked so sour on the balcony... )...
