Details about Gounod : Messes |  Associated sheet music

French Romantic composer Charles-François Gounod composed a total of 21 messes [masses].

These are either masses with organ accompaniment, masses with orchestral accompaniment as well as requiem masses.

The Requiem composed in 1893 is Gounod's final composition.

As a composer of sacred choral music, Gounod was much influenced by the years he spent in Rome between 1840 and 1842.

It is there that Gounod became acquainted with the music of Palestrina, which impressed him profoundly and had a lasting effect on his own church music.

Like Palestrina, Gounod considered that the essential function of church music is to support the message of faith while avoiding superficial or distracting musical effects.

Gounod's ideal of simple and understandable choral music is also to be seen in connection with his own activity as a conductor of amateur choirs.
