Soeur Sourire

Couldn't let this one pass by !!...a gentle set of songs sung entirely in French !! and of course the hit that went Zooming round the world in 1961.
 In 1961, the album was recorded in Brussels at Philips; the single "Dominique" became an international hit, and in 1962 her album sold nearly two million copies. The Dominican Sister became an international celebrity, with the stage name of Sœur Sourire ("Sister Smile"). She gave concerts and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show on 5 January 1964. "Dominique" was the first, and remains the only, Belgian song to be a number one hit single in the United States.

Thanks for this. I had searched the web a while back to no avail to find a replacement for a heavily worn vinyl copy my sister had. Its a nice 'happy' album.

To the last 2 Anonymous commenters -- thank you for your positive presence here:)

To the first Anonymous commenter -- Is the beautiful music that Luigi shares from the goodness of his heart too expen$ive for you;)?

Well said, Luigi. I use Opera for downloading because it's light and speedy for me. So clicking through a link or two to get to a download of good music someone is offering freely is a minor thing for me.

Thanks, espo!!!
