You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Récitatif
Sous un délicieux ombrage
Je me promenais l’autre jour;
Des sons nouveaux remplissaient le bocage,
Et ces doux sons inspiraient de l’amour.

Musette

L’aimable Lisette
Forme ces concerts,
Et sur sa musette
Exprime et répète
Les plus tendres airs.

Les grâces naïves,
Près d’elle captives,
Conduisent ses doigts.
Aux sons qu’elle tire;
L’amour, qui l’inspire,
Accords sa voix.

L’aimable Lisette...

Récitatif
 Caché dans l’épaisseur d’un bosquet favorable,
 J’entrevis un spectacle aimable;
 Et j’adorai les Dieux Qui règnent sur nos sens;
 Mais Lisette au milieu de tant d’objets charmants,
 Me parut le plus adorable.

Air
 L’Amour n’a plus besoin de son carquois vainqueur:
 Quand il veut surprendre un coeur,
 De l’adorable Lisette,
 Il emprunte la musette.

 Qu’il vole en tous lieux sur ses pas,
 Il sera sûr de la victoire.
 Les talents unis aux appas
 Sont les vrais garants de sa gloire.

 Qu’il vole en tous lieux...
