9.Hommage à S. Pickwick Esq. P.P.M.P.C.

Debussy's Préludes are 24 pieces for solo piano, divided into two books of 12 preludes each.
Unlike some notable collections of preludes from prior times, such as Chopin's Op. 28 preludes, or the preludes from Johann Sebastian Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier, Debussy's do not follow a strict pattern of tonal centres.

The prelude's title refers to the protagonist of Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers – P.P.M.P.C. stands for "Perpetual President Member of the Pickwick Club".

The piece is characteristic for its eccentric shifts in expression and often melancholy or sentimental tone.
It is also notable for incorporating the opening refrain from "God Save the Queen".

A performance lasts approximately two and a half minutes

I have arranged all of these preludes from both books:

Book 1

Danseuses de Delphes
Les sons et le parfums…..
Des pas sur le neige 
La fille aux cheveux de lin
La Cathédral engloutie
