Ange Flégier (1846–1925) was born in Marseilles and also died there. He
studied composition with Ambroise Thomas at the Conservatoire in Paris and then became a well-known composer with more than 350 works in his catalogue. Most of his works are concert songs and chamber music pieces. He also worked as a music critic and, later in life, as a painter.

J'aime le son du Cor, le soir, au fond des bois,
Soit qu'il chante les pleurs de la biche aux abois,
Ou l'adieu du chasseur que l'écho faible accueille,
Et que le vent du nord porte de feuille en feuille.

Que de fois, seul, dans l'ombre à minuit demeuré,
J'ai souri de l'entendre, et plus souvent pleuré !
Car je croyais ouïr de ces bruits prophétiques
Qui précédaient la mort des Paladins antiques.

Âmes des Chevaliers, revenez-vous encor?
Est-ce vous qui parlez avec la voix du Cor ?
Roncevaux ! Roncevaux ! Dans ta sombre vallée
L'ombre du grand Roland n'est donc pas consolée !
