FauriS is one of the acknowledged masters of modem French song. Fastidious, classical in the best sense, he makes little or no attempt in his accompaniments to illustrate the picturesque elements in the words. His methods are more subtle he seeks to give his music a melodic line that faithfully follows and illustrates the inner sentiment of the words. The result is such a close alliance between words and music that the latter at least can be said to have no separate existence.
Fauri's songs are typically French. especially m their economy of means.
