Charles-François Gounod (1818 -- 1893) was a French composer, most well known for his Ave Maria (based on a work by Bach) as well as his opera Faust. Another opera by Gounod is Roméo et Juliette.

Gounod was born in Paris, the son of a pianist mother and an artist father. His mother was his first piano teacher. Under her tutelage, Gounod first showed his musical talents. He entered the Paris Conservatoire, where he studied under Fromental Halévy and Pierre Zimmermann (he later married Zimmermann's daughter). In 1839, he won the Prix de Rome for his cantata Fernand. He was following his father; François-Louis Gounod (d. 1823) had won the second Prix de Rome in painting in 1783. During his stay of four years in Italy, Gounod studied the music of Palestrina and other sacred works of the sixteenth century; these he never ceased to cherish. Around 1846-47 he gave serious consideration to joining the priesthood, but he changed his mind before actually taking holy orders, and went back to composition. During that period, he was attached to the Church of Foreign Missions in Paris.

In 1854, Gounod completed a Messe Solennelle, also known as the Saint Cecilia Mass. This work was first performed in its entirety in the church of St Eustache in Paris on Saint Cecilia's Day, 22 November 1855; from this rendition dates Gounod's fame as a noteworthy composer.

The other works, those meant for use in a Mass and with Latin texts, are more traditionally hymn-sounding: reverent, slow, and reassuring. And yet there is still enough variety in the settings -- even among four settings of O Salutaris Hostia. This arrangement features 3 selections from "Chants sacrés", 60 part songs for voices and organ in 3 volumes: O Salutaris, Ave Verum and Pie Jesus.

Although originally composed for Solo Voice (Soprano and Tenor) and Organ, I created this arrangement for Viola & Acoustic Piano.
