This may well be the perfect introduction to the flavor and style of Debussy's work. Written in G-flat major, the song's tempo is "very calm and sweetly expressive," and the best elements of impressionism are revealed in the sweeping phrases, parallelism, and sixth and seventh chords. Performance notes and English translations are included.
