Ravel wrote Pavane pour une infante défunte (a pavane for a dead princess or a processional not a funeral procession but a processional dance for princesses long remembered or forgotten and therefore dead who were possibly part of it one upon a time....whew!) in 1899. He was a student then of Gabriel Faure who also wrote a Pavane about the same time.
