Misc. Comments

  • The 1883 Egrot edition describes this as a "Pastorale", so it is tagged as such for now; other publications imply that this originally came from an opera, and if verified, this page will have to be moved to the full opera page.
  • A most famous French song associated with "La Commune de Paris", the short insurrection of 1871.
