All three of these are early poems by Lorca (in a translation by Félix Gattegno) and were included in Canciones 1921–1924, published in 1927. The section subheadings for each of the poems are: (i) ‘Au delà du monde’, (ii) ‘Andalouse’, and (iii) ‘Chansons pour finir’—indeed, the Chanson de l’oranger sec is the last poem in the collection. ‘What difficulty I have in proving musically my passion for Lorca!’, wrote Poulenc in JdmM. ‘My sonata for violin and piano … is, alas, very mediocre Poulenc, and these three songs are of little importance in my vocal work.’
