We hope you enjoy the recent Black Veils' translation and performance of Jacques Brel's 1961 song "Le Moribond." Rod McKuen adapted this song as "Seasons in the Sun," and Terry Jacks had a big hit with it in 1974. With our translation, we attempted to be as true to Brel's song as possible.
As a backdrop, we used Jean Cocteau's 1946 film "La Belle et La Bête" ("Beauty and the Beast") starring Josette Day (as Belle) and Jean Marais (as la bête and the prince). We must also thank the Catalan musical director Jordi Saval and Hespèrion XXI for so graciously and consistently restoring medieval music and particularly the song we used during the video extra, "A la una Yo Nacì" (Sefarad / Sarajevo). Maestro Saval, we share an adoration of fine and early music!
