05 Cyrano's Song
A 21st century romantic love song that the 16th century figure Cyrano de Bergerac would have sung to Roxanne, (the princess he served) if he’d had the courage. Cyrano was a childhood hero to one of my heroes — my former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. As I studied Cyrano, he became a hero to me too — a man who does his own thing with class and grace, no matter what people think, and who was also a romantic poet. Fantastic acoustic guitar here from David Grier, one of the best in the world. Smooth, angelic harmony by Zoe Muth added just the right touch.
