Festive greetings everyone.

I am looking for the rest of the lyrics to the following:

"O hark to the horns of the hunters in the morning/

Their clear notes re-echo afar on the hill

All fresh with the dew drop the grass sparkles gaily

And scented with sweet-smelling flowers .."

Help much appreciated.

I don't think they are the same but they seem to be similar in style. Hope it's not a waste of your time.

Hi, I was just looking for the music of this Schubert song that I learnt in primary school MANY, MANY years ago!

I may not have it all (there's maybe a second verse between these two) but for what it's worth:


O hark to the sound of the huntsmen in the morning;
Their clear notes re-echo afar on the hill.
All fresh with the dew-drops the grass sparkles gaily
And perfumed with sweet-scented flowers is the air
As over the meadow the hunters are rushing,
To baying of hounds and the horn's loud fanfare.

Then come, follow on, follow on, follow on;
The stag is away through the fields,
Across the shining meadows see him at bay,
Through the ??? and the emerald valley,
Sing tally-ho! Sing tally-ho!
On, hark away, view hallo!

The stag leads them onwards through coppice and moorland,
The air is like wine as they gallop along.
No barrier can stay them till daylight is over,
And proud, but exhausted, their quarry is won.
Then homeward they turn at the horn's cheerful calling,
Contented and happy 'neath the fast-setting sun.

Then come, follow on    etc.

Hope this helps,

Ann
