Title: La cathédrale engloutie (The Sunken Cathedral)
Composer: C. Debussy
Instrument: Piano

Notes: This prelude is based on an ancient myth about a submerged underwater cathedral that rises up from the sea on clear mornings through the transparent water. Listen to the mimicked sounds of priests chanting, bells chiming, and the organ playing. These are still heard as it sinks back into the ocean, but from underwater.
