While I was hunting for the lyrics to Fauré's Madrigal. Opus 35. I came across this description on the ChoralWiki site: "Fauré’s Op.35 setting of Armand Silvestre's poem is not widely known but is lovely. It was composed as a wedding present to André Messager in 1883". Which really says all that needs to be said from my point of view other than that the performance below is by the Maîtrise de Nîmes from their concert given on January 21st 2012 at the Musée des Beaux arts, Nîmes, the conductor was Vincent Recolin and the pianist Philippe Reymond. Enjoy ´:-).

Lyrics: Gabriel Fauré - Madrigal Opus 35

Inhumaines qui, sans merci
Vous raillez de notre souci

Refrain: Aimez quand on vous aime, aimez quand on vous aime

Ingrats qui ne vous doutez pas,
Des rêves éclos sur vos pas

Sachez ô cruelles beautés
Que les jours d'aimer sont comptés

Sachez, amoureux inconstants
Que le bien d'aimer n'a qu'un temps !

Un même destin nous poursuit
Et notre folie est la même

C'est celle de fuir qui nous aime
C'est celle d'aimer qui nous fuit
