Deodat, Baron de Severac, was born in Saint Felix Lauragais, near Toulouse, in 1872 and, in 1893, entered the Toulouse Conservatory. Three years later he went to Paris where d'Indy taught him at the Schola Cantorum. Although piano music became his preferred form of composition he also wrote music in other forms including a few stage works. In 1910 Severac settled in Ceret in the Pyrenees where he devoted himself to the musical life of his adopted region and where he died in 1921.

"Le Coeur du Moulin" is a two act opera on a libretto by Maurice Magre. It had a difficult gestation. Although completed in 1902, it was reworked several times and did not reach the stage until late in 1909. It was well received and attained 14 performances before it was withdrawn. It was then given in Toulouse early in 1913 but seems not to have been staged since. The informative booklet which comes with the disc points out that naturalism was a trend not only in Italian but also in French opera at the turn of the century. Charpentier's "Louise" is usually cited as the closest opera in France got to Italian verismo but other operas of the time portrayed characters who were rooted in reality. Such operas often had rural settings. The land, the soil, was omnipresent. Massenet's "Sapho" is probably the best known opera of this type.

However, don't expect "Le Coeur du Moulin" to be a veristic knockabout. Indeed, the story is so flimsy as to be virtually non-existent. After many years, Jacques returns home to find that his lover, Marie, has married another, Pierre. A mutual attraction persists but Jacques behaves honourably and leaves. Although some of the characters are simply drawn and taken from real life, others are fantastical in nature.
