Sing for VE Day

Celebrating VE Day

As Europe prepares to celebrate VE Day, listen to the songs of liberation that resonated across France in and around 1945. Featuring classic French chanson artists (Trenet, Piaf, Baker) these compilations will take you back to a time when France was keen to celebrate after several years of occupation. The selection also features a number of partisans songs from all over Europe, including the original version of Le chant des partisans, by French composer Anna Marly.
