Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conductor, LESLIE HEWARD Weber's own programme to his Konzertstiick is as follows : ' The lady sits in her tower ; she gazes sadly into the distance. Her knight has been for years in the Holy Land : shall she never see him again ? Battles have been fought ; but there is no news of him who is so dear to her. In vain have been her prayers and her longing. A dreadful vision rises in her mind-her knight is lying on the battlefield, deserted by his companions; his heart's blood is ebbing fast away. Could she but be by his side !-could she but die with him ! She falls down exhausted and senseless. But hark ! What is that distant sound ? What glimmers in the sunlight from the wood ? What are those forms approaching ? Knights and squires with the cross of the Crusaders, banners waving, acclamations of the people ; and there !-it is he ! She sinks into his arms. What a commotion of love ! What an infinite, indescribable happiness ! The very woods and waves sing the song of true love ; a thousand voices proclaim its victory.'
