Description of work

Lento D minor 6/8


Libretto/text

Täglich gin die wunderschöne Sultanstochter auf und nieder um die Abendzeit am Springbrunn,
wo die weißen Wasser plätschern. 

Varje dag i skymningsstunden, gick sultanens sköna dotter ned till parkens brunn av marmor,
där de klara vattnen spela.
