This sheet music got out of the oblivion. This is an arrangement of Léo Delibes’s version in Bibliothèque nationale de France. This song is intended for three female equal voices or children choirs. It is based on a poem by Louis Ratisbonne from the collection “La comédie enfantine” (1860). Léo Delibes composed many duets, trios and mixed and equal chorus, and his famous opera Lakmé. “L’écheveau de fil” is little-known, but it is a beautiful example of tender and naïve poetry.
