[T.2.2: C]

Siegfried, Gutrune, and Hagen now prepare to welcome Gunther and his new bride Bruennhilde to Gibichung Hall, after spotting them coming upriver. Gutrune calls upon Hagen, of all people, to serve as wedding herald:

Siegfried: (#103/#168 >>:) A strong wind’s now driving the lovers back up the Rhine: (#156; #103; #168?) and so make ready their welcome! (#156/#171)

 

Gutrune: (#156a:) Siegfried, mightiest of men: (#154:; #?: [a musical figure from T.1.2-3?:) how fear of you grips me fast (:#16; :#? – t.1.2-3 ref?)!

 

Hagen: (calling from the shore: #168: [rhythm only?]) I can see a sail in the distance.

 

Siegfried: Then give the messenger thanks (:#168 [rhythm only?]).

 

Gutrune: (#169:) Let’s welcome her fondly that, care-free, she’s glad to stay here (:#169)! (#156/#152) (#171:) You, Hagen, lovingly call the menfolk (:#171) (#169:) to Gibich’s garth for the wedding (:#169)! (#156b:) Happy women I’ll call to the feast: (#156?:) they’ll be glad to follow me in my joy (:#156).

 

(#156/#171/#110: [or #145?] walking towards the hall and turning round once more)

 

Gutrune: Won’t you rest, you wicked hero?

 

Siegfried: Helping you is rest enough.

 

(He offers her his hand and returns to the hall with her. Hagen has mounted a rock at the back of the stage: here he raises his cowhorn to his lips and begins to blow. #169 vari >>) (#168)
