Belgian-French organist and composer; professor of organ at the Paris Conservatory in 1872. He wrote romantic, expansive music with chromatic harmonies and restless modulation. He was the organist for Ste. Clotilde from 1858 until his death. Even though he didn't receive much recognition as a composer, his teaching methods and style were carried on in Schola Cantorum after his death. His works include "Symphony In D Minor" and the "Mass For Three Voices," from which comes the familiar "Panis Angelicus".

Franck was able to become financially independent with his marriage to the daughter of actress Madame Desmousseaux in 1848. He died November 8, 1890 in Paris.
