The Music Room

As the Grandfather Clock in the parlor of the maison d'été chimes in the evening, you can softly hear the French lullaby, "Au Clair de la Lune," sung by Camille as she puts her daughter to bed.


On Bastille Day the celebration concludes with a rousing rendition of the forbidden "La Marseillaise," sung by the patriots at Pascal’s Restaurant, with Pascal on trumpet.


Finally a cherished 78 recording of Lucienne Boyer, the Parisian "diseuse" whose love song of the 1930s tenderly brings tears to Pierre Richarde. Camille in a far different setting wistfully recalls this same song.
