Danse d'Abisag, Op.75 (Schmitt, Florent)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1928 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Danse d'Abisag
Or le Roi devint vieux et avancĂ© en âge ; et quoiqu'on le couvrĂ®t de vĂŞtemens il ne pouvoit pourtant se rĂ©chauffer.
Et ses serviteurs lui dirent : Qu'on cherche au Roi notre Seigneur une jeune fille vierge qui se tienne devant le Roi et qui en ait soin, et qu'elle dorme en son sein afin que le Roi notre Seigneur se rĂ©chauffe.
On chercha donc dans toutes les contrĂ©es d'IsraĂ«l une fille qui fĂ»t belle ; et on trouva Abisag Sunamite qu'on amena au Roi.
Et cette jeune fille Ă©toit fort belle et elle avoit soin du Roi et elle le servoit ; mais le Roi ne la connĂ»t point.
Rois I.
