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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Hier auf den Fluren mit rosigen Wangen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hier auf den Fluren mit rosigen Wangen,
[Hirtinnen, eilet]1 zum Tanze herbei,
Laßt [euch]2 die Wonnen des Frühlings umfangen,
Liebe und Freude sind ewiger Mai.

Hier [zu den]3 Füßen,
Holde [dir, grüßen]4
Herrscherin von Arkadien wir dich.
Flöten, Schalmeien
Tönen, es freuen
Deiner die Fluren, die blühenden sich.

Von Jubel erschallen die grünenden Hallen 
Der Höhen, die luftig,
Der [Fluren]5, die duftig
Erglänzen und [strahlen]6 in Liebe und Lust,
In schattigen Thalen,
Da schweigen die Qualen 
Der liebenden Brust.

Note: The libretto of Chézy's initial version of her play, with the title Rosamunde, Fürstinn von Cypern, which was staged in 1823 in Vienna with Schubert's music, is lost. This original version of the play comprises 4 acts. The manuscript of a revised version of Rosamunde in 5 acts has lately been discovered and published (see reference above). The Hirtenchor set by Schubert appears in act 3, scene 5 of the revised version.

Chœur des bergers

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Ici, dans les champs, avec vos joues roses,
Bergères, venez vite dans la danse,
Que les délices du printemps vous entourent,
Amour et joie sont éternellement Mai.

Ici, à tes pieds, gracieuse
Reine d'Arcadie, nous te saluons.
Flûtes, pipeaux sonnent, et se réjouissent
Les champs qui fleurissent.

Pleins d'allégresse les verts espaces résonnent ;
Les sommets, aériens, les champs, parfumés,
Brillent et rayonnent d'amour et de délice,
Dans les vallées ombragées, là se taisent les tourments
Du cœur amoureux.
