Fauré was born in Pamiers, Ariège, Midi-Pyrénées, in the south of France, the fifth son and youngest of six children of Toussaint-Honoré Fauré (1810--85) and Marie-Antoinette-Hélène Lalène-Laprade (1809-87).

As a young man Fauré had been very cheerful; a friend wrote of his "youthful, even somewhat child-like, mirth." From his thirties he suffered bouts of depression, which he described as "spleen", possibly first caused by his broken engagement and his lack of success as a composer.

Although this piece was originally written for Piano and Voice, I arranged it for Viola and Concert (Pedal) Harp to accentuate the sorrow and unhappiness.
