Introduction  EnglishFrançais
Even though Il dort encore, an extract from an unfinished comédie lyrique called Hymnis, contains the kind of sequences taken from Conservatoire textbooks, Debussy breaks the regularity of Banville’s verses and extends the reference to ‘Anacréon, chanteur mélodieux’, which is the heart of the song.
