Charles Gounod


French composer of operas, choral works, orchestral pieces and piano and chamber music. His first opera was performed in 1851. He wrote "Faust" and "Ave Maria" in 1859. After 1860, Gounod composed for the stage.

As he aged, he had heart trouble and a temporary paralysis of one side of his body. Though his eyesight was failing he was determined to complete his last piece of music, a Requiem. Gounod collapsed while working on it and lay in a coma for two days, his fingers tightly wrapped around a crucifix. He died on 10/17/1893 at 6:25 AM at his home in St. Cloud, France.
