Description (Brief)
This sheet music for "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup," was originally written by Anna Sosenko and published by Francis Day in Paris in 1935. The romantic and bilingual lyrics reflected the hopes of an English lad who had fallen in love with a Parisian girl. The song enjoyed immense popularity during World War II, and Hildegarde was a special favorite of many Allied servicemen during the War. The cover has been signed by both Sosenko and Hildegarde, to their family and friends.
