Text Appearing Before Image:
PANEL BY BRAUNE PARSIFAL AND THE SWAN GURNEMANZ: Couldst thou do murder Here in holy forest? Why harmed thee that goodly Swan? Suddenly a wild swan falls wounded at the feetof Gurnemanz, and two Knights appear dragging theinnocent Parsifal, who had shot it, not knowing itwas under the Kings protection. He is reproachedby Gurnemanz and questioned, but can tell little ofhimself. He remembers that his mother was calledHerzeleid and lived in a forest. Kundry, whose atten-tion is attracted, explains that the youths father wasGamuret, and after his death in battle his mothertook him away from the haunts of men lest he meetthe same fate. She is now dead, and Parsifal is awanderer. The train of Amforlas again approaches, returningfrom the lake. Gurnemanz invites Parsifal to accom-pany them to the Castle, the thought having occurredto him that this strange youth may be the guilelessfool who is to be the means of Amforlas regeneration. 308 VICTROLA BOOK OF THE OPERA-WAGNERS PARSIFAL

PACH BROS. GURNEMANZ CONDUCTING PARSIFAL TO MONSALVAT ACT I GURNEMANZ: From bathing comes the King again; High stands the sun now: Let me to the holy Feast then conduct thee; For—an thourt pure, Surely the Grail will feed and refresh thee. (He has gently laid Parsifals arm on his own neck, and, supporting his body with his arm, leads him slozvly along.) Parsifal: What is the Grail?Gurnemanz: I may not say: But if to serve it thou be bidden, Knowledge of it will not be hidden. And lo! Methinks I know thee now indeed: No earthly road to it doth lead, By no one can it be detected Who by itself is not elected. Parsifal: I scarcely move,— Yet swiftly seem to run.Gurnemanz: My son, thou seest Here time and space are one. The change to the Castle Hall is here effected by a moving scene behind Gurnemanzand Parsifal, so that they seem to be walking slowly along, at first through the forest, theninto a covered gallery which ascends to the Castle. This effective device was first used atBayre
