The Deutsch catalogue treats these two fragments as part of the same song and accords them a shared Deutsch number while also conceding the possibility that the first fragment (in A flat) was part of a song which was never completed, and that the second (in G major according to the key signature, although the fragment begins in C flat major) was part of the second verse of a much more sophisticated setting which has been lost. Both fragments together last less than a minute, yet the composer has found a musical key to the enigma of Mignon, her appearance reflected in the translucence of the music.
