Claude-Achille Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) a French composer. Along with Maurice Ravel, one of the most prominent figures working within the field of impressionist music, intensely disliking the term when applied to his compositions. A crucial figure in the transition to the modern era in Western music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers.
Debussy's Clair de Lune (or "Moonlight") is a beautifully expressive piece of music, with a dreamy quality making it ideally suited for wedding and funeral services, whether held in a church or elsewhere. Because of its mix of long sustained and shorter notes, it is best played on a piano but experience organists can play it with care. Download the piano sheet music, midi and mp3 files.
