Misc. Comments

Described as a Cantata on Wikipedia-Fr (a quote from a biographical bit about Panseron in Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine, 1885.) Actually, described as a cantata even as early as a review, in 1813, of the premiere of the work.

""Herminie. Scène lyrique exécutée dans la séance solennelle de la distribution des Grands Prix par la classe des Beaux-Arts de l'Institut Imperial, le 2.8.bre 1813. Paroles de Mr P. A. Vieillard. Musique d' Auguste-Mathieu Panseron, agé de 18 ans, qui a remporté le Grand Prix de composition musicale au Concours de l'an 1813." Pour soprano solo et orchestre" - quote from Rechercheisiodre.fr. (No, that's not the review.)

"Les paroles de la cantate sont de M. Vieillard"... followed by a quote of the libretto and a brief review of the concert etc.- see Magasin encyclopédique: ou Journal des sciences, Volume 5.
