César Auguste Franck


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.

Sy Scholfield quotes same data from the book Caesar Franck by Wilhelm Mohr (Hans Schneider, 1969), p. 14: "1822 ... Bald darauf zogen die Eltern um nach der Place Saint-Pierre (heute Rue Saint-Pierre). Hier kam am 10. Dezember desselben Jahres gegen sieben Uhr morgens das zweite Kind zur Welt, das nach dem damaligen Brauch die Vornamen des ersten, verstorbenen, erbte und auf die Namen Cäsar August Johann Wilhelm Hubert getauft wurde."
