Charles Trenet

There are four compilation albums featuring many legendary French singers, such as Charles Trenet, Maurice Chevalier, Edith Piaf, Mistinguett, Tino Rossi and others within the Arkadia Chansons label. The music from these legendary artists documents and captures the sounds of the times during which they thrived. These compilations represent different musical styles and genres, including Songs about Paris, the sounds of the accordion, the music the French played to survive under the German Occupation of World War II, and the Greatist Hits of French music.

Charles Trenet, for example, came to the spotlight in the 1930's and was a voice of optimism in troubled times. His music was candid, yet hopeful. Edith Piaf is consistently recognized as having one of the most unique and passionate voices of all times, and her songs have been described as haunting, piercing right to the souls of those who heard them. Her voice has been encapsulated in time, featured in movies, notably in Saving Private Ryan-a beautiful sound in a horrific War-and her life was also showcased in a recent Oscar Winning feature film.
