La Vie en Rose (Take Me to Your Heart Again)
Written in France in 1945 and popularized in the U.S. during the 1950’s in the film Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn, this rich and sensitive signature song of singer Edith Piaf has been set for handbells and handchimes by Sandra Eithun. The literal meaning of the piece is “life in pink,” but can be translated to living life in rosy hues. The beauty of the lyrical lines and lush chords will be a lovely addition to any concert or advanced festival track, and is often instantly recognizable. 71 measures.
