Le Chant Du Monde, in collaboration with the Chaplin Office, have released a collection of Charlie Chaplin’s film soundtracks. The iconic actor first began his career as a young boy on stage and abandoned his education to support himself in odd jobs whilst still trying to pursue his acting ambition. He eventually toured with the prestigious Fred Karno music hall troupe, thanks to his brother who was one of the company's key performers. Charlie Chaplin went to blossom into his career in cinema starring in, directing, producing and even composing the music for many celebrated films such as The Kid, The Circus, A Woman of Paris, City Lights, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, Limelight and more.
Le Chant du monde is the oldest French music publishing house in existence since 1938 and recently has partnership with Hamonia Mundi.
