According to the art catalog, Chant Olympique was the pseudonym of a French composer. Chant Olympique was also called the Olympic Hymn sung by 1200 chorus singers. The song was Wilt heden treden naked from Gedenck Clanck from Valerius. In 1928, the Olympic Hymn was not the official hymn as the IOC declared the Official Anthem only in 1958. Since 1960 it has been sung during the Opening Ceremony of each Olympic Games. Probably the match of the title was just a coincidence.
