Les Deux Cousines

vers/verse, pub:1835




From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Four stanzas of eight lines, rhyming a, b, b, a, c, c, d, d, sung alternately by two girls. Then follows a single couplet, of which each sings one line. Finally the piece ends with two four-line stanzas, sung simultaneously, though of different wording. This last rhymes a, a, b, b.
     The original MS. is signed " Alexandre Dumas."
     This was set to music by Hippolyte Monpou.
     Though not dated, it probably belongs to the same period as its companion piece, the "Chanson Sicilienne, ou Lamento."
