However, sir, this is not enough. A person like you, who
lives magnificently, and who are inclined towards fine things, should have
a concert of music here every Wednesday or every Thursday.
Is that what people of quality do?
Then I'll have them. Will it be fine?
Without doubt. You must have three voices-- a tenor, a
soprano, and a bass, who will be accompanied by a bass-viol, a theorbo,
and a clavecin for the chords, with two violins to play the ritournelles.
You must also add a trumpet marine. The trumpet marine
is an instrument that pleases me and it's harmonious.
At least, don't forget to send the musicians to sing
You will have everything you should have.
But above all, let the ballet be fine.
You will be pleased with it, and, among other things,
with certain minuets you will find in it.
Ah! Minuets are my dance, and I would like you to
see me dance them. Come, my Dancing Master.
A hat, sir, if you please. La, la, la, la. La, la, la,
la. In cadence please. La, la, la, la. Your right leg. La, la, la, la.
Don't move your shoulders so. La, la, la, la. Your arms are wrong. La,
la, la, la. Raise your head. Turn the toe out. La, la, la, la. Straighten
your body up.
