18 DRAMATIC AND LYRIC INTERPRETATION
In this refrain the interpreter raises the ex­pression of terror to the climax. In the third verse:
Interpreter
(Again neutral voice)
Saint Nicolas au bout de sept ans, Vint a passer dedans ce champ, II s'en allait chez le boucher . . .
Saint Nicholas
(Red voice, luminous voice, nobly posed, grave
register)
Boucher . . . voudrais-tu me loger?
Butcher
(Humble voice, submissive to the Saint)
Entrez, entrez, Saint Nicolas,
Y a d'la place, y n'en manqu'pas!
Interpreter
11 n'6tait pas sitot entr6, Qu'il a demands a souper.
Refrain:
11 6tait trois petits enfants
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs.
In this refrain the interpreter will reveal how afraid he is of what he knows about the crime
