The genre of melodie underwent a great deal of change between Claude Debussys date of birth and the publication of his first songs in 1879. With some simplification, one could say that this was the period when the French song grew to become an established form of high art music, when it left behind the features of the earlier, simpler genre, the romance, once and forever. German models played a pivotal role in this transformation process, as they did elsewhere in 19th century French music.
