Composed in 1887-1888, Debussy's cantata, or Poème Lyrique, was based upon the ballad The Blessed Damozel by Dante Gabriel Rossetti in a French translation by Gabriel Sarrazin. Though premiered and published in vocal in 1893, the orchestral score didn't appear until 1902 due to the composer's revisions to the orchestration. The 1902 Durand scoree is reprinted here in an easy-to-read format at a very reasonable price. In contrast to so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is actually readable. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
