Sous le Ciel de Paris

Following yesterday’s attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, I changed what I was planning to play and thought this would be more suitable. It was written for the 1951 film of the same name which showed various intertwining events in the daily lives of Parisians. The song was later recorded by Édith Piaf. I’ve always loved way the song goes from minor to major and back to minor again. It seems to be particularly appropriate today. This piece is dedicated to all those affected by the atrocity #jesuischarlie
