30 measures in total, notated on both sides of the leaf, the initial 13 measures in black ink, the following 17 in purple pencil, possibly a continuation of the same work.
With several deletions and "Notes manuscrites de Ch. Gounod" in pencil to upper right margin.
Slightly worn and browned; cut from a larger leaf. "Gounod wrote in most of the major genres of his day, sacred and secular. That his reputation began to wane even during his lifetime does not detract from his place among the most respected and prolific composers in France during the second half of the 19th century." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. (Inventory #: 36231)
