Kjerulf, Halfdan (1815-68), Norwegian composer, was born at Christiania, where his father was a government official. He studied law at the university, but on the death of the elder Kjerulf turned to music. He obtained a government grant to enable him to study at Leipzig under Richter, and between 1860 and 1865 set many ballads and lyrics, among which were some of Bjdrnson's and Moore's. His songs were translated by Marzials.
