The Organ Rehearsal (1885). Henry Lerolle (French, 1848-1929). Oil on canvas. Met.
Set in the choir loft of the church of Saint-François-Xavier in Paris, it features members of Lerolle’s intimate circle, including his wife (bare-headed) and her sisters, in fashionable matching hats; his brother-in-law, composer Ernest Chausson, plays the organ. The painter himself gazes outward at left. Shown at the Salon of 1885. One critic recalled, “spectators … spoke low before it, as if waiting for … the voice of the singer to be heard.”

OH MY WORD! I found more footage from La Révolution Française — yes, Boublil and Schönberg’s 1973 rock opera (the only other clip I know of is this).

Yes, before they wrote Les Mis, they wrote the song “Chouans, en avant” which became a #1 hit on the French charts.

#sounds like a drinking song

Oh I know! I could never figure out why that song was the hit. There are so many beautiful songs in that show. Such as: "Quatre Saisons Pour un Amour."

Well, drinking songs are actually a big thing in France (or used to be, I don’t know if it’s still the case…).

I mean, this is the song that remained #1 for 13 weeks in 1987 and sold like 1 million copies in France.

Maybe it was popular because the song expresses anti-French Revolutionary sentiments?
