Finally, the double album L'Heptade, was released in 1976 after months of recording in Serge Fiori's own house in St-Césaire, Québec. The songs describe seven stages of consciousness in a person's daily life. The first and the last songs are named "Comme un fou" and "Comme un sage", indicating a progression towards wisdom; from a fool to a sage. The group was invited to Los Angeles, where the performance of old and new material was filmed by a team from the National Film Board of Canada and released as Harmonium en Californie in October 1979. Harmonium en tournée, a live version of L'Heptade recorded in Vancouver, was released in 1980. In 2007, all three of Harmonium's studio albums were named among the 100 greatest Canadian albums of all time in Bob Mersereau's book The Top 100 Canadian Albums.

L'Heptade is a music studio album recording by HARMONIUM (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1976 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Passing from prog folk into folk-influenced symphonic prog, Harmonium's epic concept album L'Heptade is a pretty little album from the tail-end of the golden age of prog. Always sentimental, the music at some point threatens to cross the line into sheer schmaltz, but is usually saved from this by the band's exceptional command of mood.

L'Heptade (from "hepta" - seven) constitutes the pinnacle of the band's creativity. This song cycle, presented as an initiatory rite, is formed of seven main pieces: "Comme un Fou" (Like a Fool), "Chanson Noire" (Dark Song), "Le Premier Ciel" (The First Sky), "Le Corridor," "Lumières de Vie" (Lights of Life), and "Comme un Sage" (Like a Wise Man).

L'Heptade is the third and final album from Harmonium. It was released as a double-LP in 1976 and is considered by some critics to be one of the most important Québécois albums in popular music.

Symphonic Prog Harmonium. Album Name L'Heptade.

In fact, a lot of people feel ‘Les 5 Saisons’ deserves that honour (which is indeed a masterpiece in its own right). However, l’Heptade is proving to be much more lush and ambitious. Although a tad overlong and indulgent for the non-initiated, it does represent a step up compositionally
