French lyrics by the composer, in two scenes. The two poems focus on the aftermath of a gory battle : corpse robbers prowl in search of booty (1), the following day as the veils of mist lift over a body of water, the dead sink deeper into their watery graves (2). English version adapted from the French by the composer. A short synthetic extract (measures 92-111) is available with the voice part being played on the English horn.
