Fugue composed for the test competition for the Prix de Rome for musical composition in 1908, on a subject imposed by Théodore Dubois.

Lili Boulanger composed this work in 1912 in preparation for the Prix de Rome. The version for choir and piano is published and often performed. However, the composer did not complete the orchestration.
