- 1) Although it looks like this is a harp part, the title page says "piano et chant", and after the first section, there are cues for the flute and clarinet parts, so this is clearly a reduction of the original instrumentation.
- 2) There is also a notation for "choeur" on page 4, though Grove Music doesn't mention a choir in any of the versions.
- 3) Grove Music also mentions "hmn", which is their abbreviation for harmonium, but there is no evidence of a harmonium part.
Graham Johnson also gives the instrumentation as harp, flute and 2 clarinets in his Gabriel Fauré: The Songs and Their Poets, page 252. Google Books link (which also gives premiere date.) Eric 01:28, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
