Joan of Arc, a playlist for you


To stay on topic with the first appointment of the "Little ariculated encyclopedia of women in history" (we talked about it last week HERE) and to inspire you and me waiting to finish the doll of our Maid of Orleans, I thought of a playlist of songs all inspired by Joan of Arc.


Joan has been an inspiration to generations of artists who, depending on the period, have emphasized one or the other aspect. The cinema has represented her story many times with masters like Rossellini and Bresson and even the musicians have been inspired by this figure with her dramatic and romantic life. The playlist below does not want to be exhaustive because there are really many musicians who have dedicated a song or even entire albums to this heroine.
