Lydia Koidula is one of the most famous Estonian poets of the 19th Century. At the first Estonian Song Festival, in 1869, two poems were set to music with lyrics by Lydia Koidula: Sind Surmani (Till Death) and Mu isamaa on minu arm (My Country is My Love), which became the unofficial anthem during the Soviet occupation. Koidula’s song always finished every Song Festival, with or without permission. The tradition persists to this day.
These Song Festivals took and still take place in Kadriorg, a Tallinn district that is characterized by parks, wooden houses and the presidential palace. Next Song Festival will be held in July,2014.
