A gallant Knight, in search of adventures, meets on his way a young village maiden. Fascinated by her
budding channs rmd simple grace, he offers her his troth. Bachelette hears him with cruel indifference, - smiles
at his passion and continues to sing her rustic song. The Knight wages his suit «ith renewed ardor, but neither
vows of love, nor promises of fortune can conquer the scruples of the beauty, whose joyous song is heard by the
Noble long after he has left the scene, and vrith sad and confused bearing has once more turned his palfiyinthe
direction of the Tournament.
NOTE BY THE AUTHOR.
The performer of this piece should endeavor to emphasize the iterated design ( repeated notes)of the accom-
paniment,8o as invariably to convey to the Hstenerthe idea of the ternary rythm_(*. v. _ of | time;m which itis
written. This observation is particular essential, inasmuch as the melody, in some passages, would seem to indicate
the bmary rythm,or | time. The effect which this piece is capable of producing, if well played, arises in. a great
measure,from the antagonism of these two confHeting rymths, one of which, as I have already observed,must be
subordinate to the other. I would recommend to the performer, the most faithful and srupulous observance of the
signs: f.f, Rall9 Dim. etc.
After having been informed of the subject of this“FableJ the listener, if it be performed in an intelligent
manneii should be enabled to follow the story, .and the entire acUon of the little sentimental drama, which the
author has endeavored to render mto music.
