Debussy had already set to music the poem by Leconte de Lisle 'La Fille aux cheveux de lin' or 'The Girl with the flaxen hair' in his 'Chansons Ecossaises', ('Scottish Songs') of 1881. But in this, the seventh of his 'Préludes', the 'cruel young girl' who sings her praises to the morning and is clearly the poet's object of desire, is transformed into a much more reflective and innocent creature.

This arrangement was specially made for the album 'Preludes, Rags and Cakewalks' (MPR 005), performed by The Symphonic Brass of London conducted by Eric Crees.
