Need help identifying a Debussy piece

December 22, 2005 at 04:40 AM · I was playing this computer game and found this piece that was really good but I didn't know the name of. It sounds like a Debussy piece but I have no idea about the details. Can someone listen to it and tell me what this is?

Hope you find what it is.

Cordially, Sandy Marcus
