Charles Gounod

June 17, 1818 - October 17, 1893
born in Paris, France, composed during the Romantic period
Charles Gounod (1818-1893) was one of the most popular French composers of the nineteenth century. He is best known for Faust, which remains at the core of the operatic repertoire, and his version of Roméo et Juliette is also frequently performed. A musical conservative rather than an innovator, Gounod wrote music notable for its lyricism and tunefulness. Although he wrote in many genres, he is remembered especially for his vocal music, much of which was composed for the church. His setting of Ave Maria, which uses Bach's C major Prelude as its accompaniment, is among the most familiar pieces of classical music. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi
