Christophe wrote this song for our presentation at Expo 86 Folklife Pavillion. Angelie is a hot air balloon. A true story from 19th Century France. Vive L'amour.
A young soldier persuades his sweetheart to go for a ride. They are stunned by the beauty and peace. It gets too cold. The young man unplugs the valve to let out some air, so that they can descend to warmer air, but the valve will not go back in. After jettisonning everything there is only one thing left to do. The soldier dives overboard in order to save his sweetheart, (who lived to tell the story).
