Geijer was one of the prominent figures in the formation of Götiska förbundet (The Geatish Society), who took the task of promoting archaeology, but also Swedish patriotism. As editor of the society’s magazine, he published his own poems in the spirit of the time and also his music settings of these. Geijer showed early a great talent for music and studied at times with different teachers. Although he seems to have considered to attempt a career in music, it remained an activity for spare time. His mind was for chamber music and the smaller format, as well as songs.
Especially famous is Randel's composition and arrangement of F A Dahlgren’s play Värmlänningarna (1846), which for many years was a loved and recurrent feature of the repertoire of the Stockholm Opera.
