The text for Après un Rêve is by a friend of Fauré, Romain Bussine, a professor of singing at the Paris Conservatoire. It is loosely based on an anonymous Tuscan poem, and both texts were included when the song was published in 1878. The original key was C minor, but Fauré authorised a D minor transposition shortly afterwards.
