That was beautifully played and very moving. I like your description. What does the title mean?

Thank you Janet. According to Wikipdedia the 'Gymnopaedia' was a yearly celebration during which naked youths displayed their athletic and martial skills through the medium of war dancing. Satie apparently owned a musical dictionary which contained this definition, but I don't see any connection to between the feel of the music and the titles' meaning.
