THE voice of the Maiden is heard at the beginning of the first song, begging Death to go from her; she is still young and has no wish to die. Then in solemn, but kindly, tones, Death tells her that he is no enemy, but a friend in whose arms she may steep softly.
'GRETCHEN AM SPINN-
BADE' sets before us the incident with which operagoers are familiar in Gounod's Faust, where Margaret sits at her spinning-wheel and meditates on the lover of whom she knows but little, except that he has won her whole heart and that her peace of mind is for ever gone.
