What is a Brunette
on: May 03, 2004, 01:45:34 PM
I've had some exposition with accompanying singers in pieces mostly from the XVI and XVII centuries. One of my favourites is Rochers Inaccessibles, by an anonymous of around 1750s. In the sheet I have, they call it a Brunette. What is it? Can you help me?

A brunette is a woman with dark brown hair.

They are nice. ;D

Seriously now, my guess is that this is a love song, and the title refers to the object of the composer's affections.

Best wishes,
