Marguerite Monnot

One of the 20th century's least-heralded woman composers was the classically-trained Marguerite Monnot, who collaborated with Edith Piaf in creation an enormous body of classic French "chansons," the French song genre that transcends pop mu
sic. Most of my friends who love classical music also love Edith Piaf. Monnot was her best friend, and together they made the 20th century "chanson" immortal.
