Chansons d’Amour
April in Paris

April 2009

The singers of Chicago a cappella welcome spring with a charming collection of songs in the language of love, from 16th-century Parisian chansons to the irresistible music of French Impressionists. Discover the vivid tonal colors of French masters such as Debussy, Poulenc, and Ravel, and hear familiar pop standards redolent with the allure of Paris, all shimmering with the "breathtaking ensemble, control [and] stylistic elegance" (American Organist) of Chicago a cappella. C’est magnifique!
