À la Belle de Mai is a studio album from French artist, Renaud. It was released in 1994 by Virgin Records and was awarded a platinum disc for sales in France. Considered to show a more personal, sensitive maturity than some of his earlier work[1] the album includes a curious musing on death (Le Petit Chat est mort) and a song for Renaud's daughter Lolita Séchan (Lolito Lolita) that includes Corsican polyphonics.[2]
