20 DRAMATIC AND LYRIC INTERPRETATION
Refrain:
II £tait trois petits enfants,
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs!
Of course the refrain must also express a share of the butcher's fright, because in his con­science now stirred up, he will revive the scene of his crime when the children innocently en­tered his house.
Saint Nicholas
(With an inflexible voice of severity, not a baritone but bass voice, deep register, more speaking than singing)
Boucher, boucher ! ne t'enfuis pas ! R'pens-toi! Dieu te pardonnera !
Interpreter
(With a voice specially rhythmic and essentially
classic)
Saint Nicolas alia s'asseoir Dessus le bord de ce saloir.
Refrain:
11 e"tait trois petits enfants,
Qui s'en allaient glaner aux champs.
Saint Nicholas
(Voice mystic, inspired, and tender)
Petits enfants qui dormez la — Je suis le grand Saint Nicolas!
