The Voice of the Sparrow – Edith Piaf’s most romantic songs
This recording of Edith Piaf's most romantic songs features the beautiful "La Vie en Rose", which you can hear me sing in the below video 🙂 It's a must-have for those who love French romantic music. Ah, what a voice this lady had!
The Voice of the Sparrow: The Very Best of Edith Piaf is available in mp3, CD and streaming.
The voice of Edith Piaf carries with it perhaps more national identity than that of any other recorded artist in the world. Tiny, frail, and tragic in her life, Piaf brought French identity to the rest of the world in a way that was understandable to all. Known as "the Little Sparrow" in her country, her voice was strong, bold, and passionate, even as she grew more infirm. The archetypical torch singer, she had massive popular success with songs like "Milord," "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," and "La Vie, L'Amour," included here with 18 other classics. While this is a great compilation of some of her best material, the complete lack of enclosed notes or biographical material may frustrate those not familiar with her fascinating career. However, the work of one of the most original songbirds of all time speaks loud and clear for itself.
Transparency statement: I recommend this artist because I sincerely believe you'll enjoy listening to her amazing songs and this is the best recording I could find on Amazon.
