The second period ( 1886–94 ) began when Chausson became secretary of the Société Nationale and entered more fully into Parisian intellectual circles. He now struggled to dispel the image of the wealthy ‘amateur’ composer by turning to more substantial dramatic works like the intense and metrically fluid Poème d'amour et de la mer ( 1882–93 ), the incidental music for Bouchor's La Légende de Sainte Cécile ( 1891 ), and his heroic opera Le Roi...

The first author to give an accurate description of the instrument might have been the architect Claude Perrault in his Abregé des dix livres d’architecture de Vitruve (1673, 2/1684). The general confusion, however, was not dispelled until early in the 20th century by projects such as Galpin’s reconstruction ( c 1900) and Degering’s excellent monograph.
