The terroristic attacks in Paris, Brussels, Nice and Berlin shocked many people and lead to fear, mistrust and unbelieve. To express these emotions, Bert Appermont composed a beautiful and sensitive In Memoriam. He used parts of the children’s’ song Au Claire de la Lune as a symbolic reference to the innocence that was suppressed by these events. He combined this with a lyrical melody which expresses the hope for a better world.
