Fantaisie dramatique sur les "Huguenots" de Meyerbeer, S412ii
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The second version of the Huguenots is almost identical to the first except that it allows for a large cut and a smaller one (neither observed here), and replaces the original frenetic final section with a grand statement of the Lutheran choral Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott – which coda is also adopted in the final version. In many ways this version is the best text of all, because it allows us the whole duet, which the final version does not, and yet has the better ending.
