What a beautiful voice and melody for such a distinctive evening – Castle on a Cloud, part of the soundtrack for the musical historical drama film Les Misérables.
The musical Castle on a Cloud features the characters Little Cosette, Young Eponine, and Madame Thenardier.
The lyrics of the free Castle on a Cloud piano sheet music were created by Herbert Kretzmer while the musical instrumentation was composed by Claude-Michel Schonberg.
The action takes place in 1823, in Montfermeil.
It features Little Cosette dreaming of a special place, where "aren't any flowers for her to weep", "nobody shouts or talks too loud", where "crying at all is not allowed" and where "a lady all in white holds her and sings a lullaby".
The lady is suggested to be Fantine, the girl’s mother.
Madame Thenardier interferes and orders her to "draw some water from the well in the wood", not caring about the meteorological conditions and Little Cosette's fears.
In the French version, Castle on a Cloud is also known as Mon Prince Est En Chemin, in the Spanish production, Castillo Celestial, and in the German one, In Meinem Schloss.
Depending on the version, some have kept the third verse while some removed it, after the rearrangement in 2006.
