Les Chansons de Paris

An important settlement for more than two millennia, by the late 12th century Paris was Europe's foremost center of learning and the arts and remained the largest city in the Western world until the turn of the 18th century. Today, Paris is indisputably one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. Over the years, musicians from around the world have done their best to capture the essence of this amazing city in song. Nothing has escaped the impassioned pen of her partisans: neither her failings not her virtues, her customs nor her inhabitants, her splendors nor her seediness. With an all-star cast of performers and 320 tracks, this new set is the largest anthology ever devoted to the City of Light. Divided into twelve chapters, Chant du Monde's specially-priced boxed set Les Chansons de Paris provides a comprehensive overview of the rich variety of songs which make up this seemingly inexhaustible repertoire.
