La Mer
Last updated: 04.09.21
I must have been very young when I first heard La Mer on the radio in the late 1940s. It was sung by Charles Trenet of course but I took no notice. It was "posh", i.e. sung in French, it was beautiful and dreamy and built up to a final crescendo. In short, I was fascinated.
I never dreamed that I would one day sing the song myself but that chanced when teaming up with Dr. Rosteck in the mid 2000s. We never performed it publicly but I thoroughly enjoyed the few occasions we singing it in rehearsal.
