Misc. Comments

Begun by 1886; Stove (2011,2) (César Franck: His Life and Times) notes that the manuscript to Les jardins d’Eros was completed 1886-8-4. Fourcaud's involvement in the libretto, according to Stove, is conjecture by d'Indy, who could not find out who wrote the words; he also conjectured that Georges Franck might have been involved. (According to Stove it was finished during the summer of 1887.) (An arrangement for chorus and piano four hands, in French, was published ca.1903 with the arrangement attributed to Gustave Sandré.)

S. Sicard was the name or pseudonym of someone, it seems, who provided texts for works published between ca.1888 and ca.1905 or thereabouts. (Not necessarily Sylvia or Sylva?... though there does seem to have been a Sylva Sicard, and no other records offhand of a Sylvia Sicard are showing up, though perhaps if one looks more closely...)
