Hi! In his 1841 review of the music for Giselle, Escudier congragulated Adam on the fact that his only borrowings were 3 bars from the Hunting Chourus from Euryanthe and 6 bars from a romance by Mlle. Puget. Thus far, I don't think any critics have idientified the latter borrowing. There's a collection of Puget songs in the library of Texas Christian University. If any one reading this is near the university and can read music, could he or she possibly find the song in question that corresponds to the borrowing in Giselle? Then we'd know where it fits into the score and its relevance to the story. Many thanks.
