La nymphe de la source
First line:
Si tes pas t'ont conduit vers l'heureuse vallée
author of text

La Nymphe de la Source (in the unlikely key of C flat major) belongs to the world of the Études Latines from the point of view of the writing for the voice, but the delightful accompaniment (flowing water music which reaches high above the treble stave) seems more ornate. The nymph has a source, but sadly the poem does not. The music is headed by the words ‘Texte par … X’.
