Charles Gounod (1818-1893) was one of the most prolific French composers of his time. He produced a large output of sacred music—including, for example, his famous Ave Maria. A deeply devout man, Gounod was also passionate about the theatre and wrote a large number of incidental music scores, including Ulysse for the Comédie Française, as well as Sapho, Roméo et Juliette and Faust, to mention only his most famous works.
