A Treasure in My Garden

Stories and songs Gilles Vigneault Illustrations Stéphane Jorisch
Singers Hart-Rouge, Davy Gallant, Connie Kaldor

Tender, subtle and irresistibly simple songs with lyrics that will delight children’s ears. Gilles Vigneault’s wandering mind carries us far away into an imaginative world full of poetry. J’ai pour toi un lac and Les amours, les travaux, two “adult” classics he penned many years ago, fit perfectly alongside lullabies and nursery rhymes. The 13 songs are also available on a DVD as short animated films produced by various filmmakers.

His work often evokes his great love of nature and the passion he has for his hometown - Natashquan, a remote, wind-swept village on the banks of the St. Lawrence. He has received numerous distinctions including the "Grand prix du disque de l'Académie Charles-Cros" in France and the "Médaille Vermeil" offered by the City of Paris
