I am thinking about using a tune from a relatively obscure symphony for a project (giving credit of course). But I first want to make sure it does not have an existing meaning associated with it.

The piece is the slow movement from Asger Hamerik's 6th symphony. It starts around 13:50.

Does this tune have any sort of strong meaning associated with it? To use an example that's a bit different from my specific scenario, I would hate to utilize this orchestration in a video documentary about an American moon landing, only to find out after the fact that it was the unofficial Danish national hymn, a folk tune about fishermen or a drinking song about political corruption.
