Marc-Antoine Désaugiers (1772–1827)

Desaugiers, Marc Antoine Madeleine (dē-zō-zhyā’). A noted French song-writer and dramatist; born at Frōjus, Nov. 17, 1772; died at Paris, Aug. 9, 1827. His vaudevilles were remarkably successful. As a light song-writer he is second only to Béranger. Many of his songs will live long; e.g., ‘The Consolations of Old Age’; ‘The Picture of New Years.’ Many of them are exquisite little gems of art; ‘The Market’; ‘Sunday Pleasures’; ‘The Palais Royal.’
